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.
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.

The Public Works Department would like to remind residents that portable basketball hoops should be kept out of the streets during plowing season. The Village will not be liable for any damage done by the plows to a portable basketball hoop left in the street.
A REMINDER TO ALL: It is a violation of NYS Vehicle & Traffic Law to push snow out into the street. Snowplows should not push snow across a Village street. Snowblowers should direct snow into the yard not out into the street. Shoveled snow should be thrown into the yard not out into the street. Residents who intentionally put snow out into Village streets could be ticketed by the Middleport Police Department.
