Historic Commission OKs change to demolition law

After some bouncing back and forth, an addition to Oxford’s Demolition by Neglect ordinance has been approved by both preservation boards.

The cost of repairs will be then charged back to the homeowner in the form of a lien on their property. (October 11, 2012, Page 2)
