Parking public hearing

A public hearing will be held during the regular meeting of the Oxford Board of Aldermen at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Oxford City Hall for the second reading of Square parking ordinances. This will be the public’s only opportunity to voice their thoughts on the changes to the city’s proposed overhaul of Oxford’s parking laws.
The proposed changes will increase the two-hour parking restrictions from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, to 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
Under the new proposed ordinances, anyone who has gotten four overtime parking tickets, will have their vehicle booted on the fifth offense. Essentially, this means they will not be able to drive their car. The violator will have to pay all of the fines owed and a $75 boot fee. If not paid within 24 hours, the car will be towed.
The first parking violation is free and the violator would get a letter that will explain the fine process. Second offense parking tickets will cost $10, then $25, then $50. However, those fines will go up $10 a month for each month the fine is left unpaid. After 90 days, the $10 fine will become a $30 fine.
If a violator gets one ticket but does not pay the fine after 90 days, the vehicle may be subject to booting as well. (September 3, 2012, Page 1A)
