 ———————————————————————————————————————–

The treasurer serves as the chief financial officer for the City of Lockport. Duties of the office include general municipal accounting, management of accounts receivable, collecting real estate taxes, investing municipal funds and much more. The treasurer’s office is continuing to make payment more convenient for residents by offering ACH to residents. This would enable you to have city and county taxes, as well as water/sewer bills and trash bills automatically withdrawn from your checking account. The forms are available at the bottom of this page. We also offer online payment options for refuse bills.

Please also be very careful when writing out checks – make sure the written dollar amount and the numerical dollar amount match exactly. We have been getting a lot of checks returned to us from our bank for this reason.

 

Important Information:

In an effort to process your transactions quickly and accurately and to minimize wait time for others, please bring your bill with you when making a payment.
