City OKS changes to weed regs, plot prices

The Oxford Board of Aldermen approved changes to two ordinances on Tuesday. The weed ordinance found a more streamlined process to determine if property is a menace and how to communicate with owners. The city also approved to increase grave costs from $300 to $700 or from $600 to $1400 for a lot. For non-residents the city will now charge $1,000 per grave or $2,000 per lot. The cost increase goes into effect Sept. 1. A moratorium on purchasing is in effect until that time. (August 4, 2011, Page 1)
