LOCKPORT – The Town of Lockport is seeking computer software that will allow it to post images of all its property tax bills on the town website.

Supervisor Marc R. Smith said at this week’s Town Board work session that the town has a quote for $4,900 for the software plus a $500 annual maintenance fee. However, the town needs to obtain other quotes before it can make the purchase.

Lori Carrero, receiver of taxes, said the town receives numerous requests for copies of tax bills to be used in real estate closings and other transactions. “We’re spending the money for postage and time,” Smith said.

All tax bills are public information, Town Attorney Michael J. Norris said.
