The Village of Middleport is a village located on the historic Erie Barge Canal in Niagara County, New York. We are about equidistant from Buffalo, Niagara Falls, and Rochester. As of the 2010 US Census, the population of the Village is 1,860 residents.
The Village's motto is "A Friendly Community." When US President Franklin D. Roosevelt stopped in Middleport during a trip on the canal, he commented that Middleport looked like "a friendly community." We take pride in our Village and hope that when you visit, you find that we live up to our motto.
ATTENTION VILLAGE RESIDENTS: This quarter's water/sewer bills were finally mailed out 2/22/2019. Due to a software issue with our radio readers, quarterly water/sewer readings were taken 2/11/2019. Because of this, more than 3 additional weeks use is in this bill cycle as readings should have been done 1/18/2019. This also means that your May 2019 bill will be smaller as it will have 3 fewer weeks in the cycle. Any bill still outstanding after 3/22/2019 will have a 10 percent penalty added. Any outstanding amount due after 4/20/2019 will be relevied onto the 2019-20 Vilalge tax bill or the property in question. We thank you for your patience in this matter.
The Middleport Fire Co. No. 1, Inc. would like to remind everyone that under no circumstances should fire hydrants be painted by private individuals without prior approval from the Village and the Fire Company.
