The City of Lockport has a strong-mayoral form of government. Most major American cities use the strong-mayoral form of government. This means the mayor of the City of Lockport has clear administrative authority over municipal government (day-to-day operations). Additionally, under this system, the mayor prepares and administers the city budget, directs departments and department heads, reviews and appoints personnel, and sets city policy in many regards.

The mayor also presides over the city’s Board of Estimate & Apportionment, which carries out the mayor’s budget. In the City of Lockport, the mayor’s proposed budget must be approved by the Common Council.

In the City of Lockport, the Common Council is the main elected body. There are six elected members of the Common Council, five elected from each ward of the city and an alderman-at-large. The council considers legislation, must approve the city budget and makes local laws and rules.

Regular meetings of the Common Council are held on the first and third Wednesdays of each month at 5:30 p.m. in the Common Council chambers at City Hall. Work sessions are held weekly at 4:30 p.m. Wednesdays.
