City Hall

Going for Google’s goods

If Google wants to bring the Internet to everyone in a community, the city of Oxford would like to roll out the welcome mat for them. The Oxford Board of Aldermen agreed Tuesday to have Stewart Rutledge lead the community’s effort to convince Google to select Oxford as one of the company’s test sites for a new ultra-high speed broadband network.

            Woodlawn zoning change OK’d

            A change in the zoning for the area near Woodlawn subdivision was finally approved by the Oxford Planning Commission after months of discussion. The deal includes a land trade between the city and property owner in order to create a community park adjacent to the subdivision. The zoning changes — which must still be OK’d by the Oxford Board of Aldermen — affect about 44 acres of land around what would become West Oxford Loop Extended.

                Is Oxford’s economy rebounding?

                It may be, according to a couple of key indicators — namely, the city’s collections on sales tax and on the 2 percent taxes on food-and-beverage purchases and hotel stays. Compared to a year prior, December’s sales-tax collections were up 8 percent and January’s were up 2.6 percent. While collections are still down for the fiscal year, they’re moving in the right direction.

                  No wine for Valentines?

                  Despite support from city officials, the State Tax Commission rejected Oxford’s request for a one-time exception for on-premise Sunday alcohol sales for Valentine’s Day. Given that Oxford has been allowed Sunday alcohol sales periodically over the years, the denial came as a shock to local officials and business operators. (February 3, 2010, Page 1)
