City schools map future

If Oxford school administrators have their way, construction on a new high school could begin next year.
The new high school is just one of several building projects city school leaders are considering to keep up with the growing number of students in the district.
The Oxford School Board approved its 10-year capital improvement plan at Monday’s meeting. The plan is essentially a wish list of building needs that school administrators believe the district will need over the next decade.

        Conference center scaling back

        A growing trend in smaller conferences and less attendees is causing the Oxford Conference Center to rethink some of its sales strategy and find ways to cut out wasteful cost.
        The Oxford Convention and Visitor Bureau’s budget is created through food and beverage taxes and a percentage of hotel/motel tax revenue and then profit from center rentals. A shrinking economy has caused a decline in all areas.

                Rate hike on horizon

                Flipping on your lights will cost you a few more cents next month.

                Electric bills are set to rise in April by about $3.80 a month for typical residential customers now that the Tennessee Valley Authority has approved a fuel-cost adjustment to cover fluctuating fuel and purchased-power costs.

                Despite the rise, customers will still pay less this April compared to April 2009, thanks to a continuous credit that’s been in place since October. (March 25, 2010, Page 1)

                  Perhaps one of your neighbors has been capturing his or her rainwater to help their garden for years. Maybe your boss is devoted to recycling and encourages others to do the same. Whoever they are, they could be eligible for a new Sustainability Leadership award.

                    Counting college students complicated

                    Oxford and other college towns have a vested interest in making sure students fill out their census forms by April 1.
                    The number of students living in a county helps determine the number of seats in Congress a state might have, how many federal dollars can be funneled to a state and its communities, and how much student loan money is doled out.
                    But, as Oxford and University of Mississippi officials are well aware, obtaining an accurate student head count is no easy task.
