                    The city of Oxford is owed $3.6 million in unpaid fines.

                    Oxford Mayor Pat Patterson announced the findings Friday during a Downtown Parking Advisory Commission Board meeting.

                    “With the recent audit, we were surprised to learn we had that amount of unpaid fines in the court system,” Patterson said. “We are working with our auditors to try to determine the best way to proceed to collect any amounts possible, and it will be one of our focuses going forward.”

                    City leaders said the findings were included in an 882-page report. They include parking violations and criminal fines, such as DUIs, that date back to 2007. (August 4, 2014, Page 1)
