Oxford

A parking garage in city’s future?

Ongoing parking woes and a discussion over the need for a parking garage downtown resurfaced at Tuesday’s Oxford Board of Aldermen meeting.

The city will continue to look into the feasibility of a parking structure downtown. (May 5, 2010, Page 6)

                Funds for Boys and Girls Club slashed

                The tight budget approved by state lawmakers this week eliminated a good percentage of Temporary Aid to Needy Families, or TANF, which is currently received through the Mississippi Department of Human Services.
