The Lockport Common Council voted to authorize the Mayor to sell 79-81 Canal St to the Hydraulic Race Corp. for $70,000 on Wednesday night.
The sale met with opposition from Aldermen Andrew Chapman and Jack Smith. Chapman questioned why the money from the sale was going to the Greater Lockport Development Corporation (GLDC), but Alderwoman Richelle Pasceri explained the money is being sent to the right organization.
Smith was not happy that the Council had not been able to meet with the GLDC as requested prior to voting. He also mentioned that requests for information concerning Canal Street had been refused, an accusation that the Mayor denied.
