LOCKPORT – The Lockport Town Board voted Wednesday to conduct a sealed-bid auction for a residential lot at 6804 Erica Lane, site of a house the town demolished in August.

The abandoned home had been foreclosed upon by Niagara County because of unpaid property taxes, but the county decided to give the house to the town instead of auctioning it itself. Town Attorney Michael J. Norris said the deadline for bidding is Nov. 19.

Norris also said the town has completed demolition of another decrepit house, this one at 5416 Hinman Road.
