City looks to give parking violators the boot

As the Oxford Board of Aldermen consider implementing a tougher parking enforcement program and hiring a parking management company, habitual overtime parking offenders could notice something is missing during their next trip to the Square — their car. Mayor Pat Patterson announced Thursday he has given authority to the Oxford Police Department to begin towing cars which have the highest amount of unpaid parking tickets from the Square. (July 27, 2012, Page 1A)

Paid parking put in reverse?

The Oxford Downtown Parking Commission will present a new plan to help moderate parking on the Square that consists of tougher enforcement of the current two-hour parking limit. (July 16, 2012, Page 1,5)

Square moves closer to paid parking

The Downtown Parking Advisory Commission will be interviewing four national parking managment firms on March 23. Whichever is selected, will work to help fix congestion and limited parking around the Square and could implement paid parking for premium spots. (March 16, 2012, Page 1A)

Helping those helping others

The United Way of Oxford and Lafayette County awarded $332,900 to 16 local agencies and a total of 26 programs aimed at providing better education, health services and financial assistance to the needy. (April 7, 2011, Page 1)

United Way sets higher goal

The United Way scaled back its fundraising goal in 2008 in expectancy of lower donations due to a failing economy.

In 2007, the goal was $450,000. It was dropped to $425,000 in 2009.

“We blew it out the top, despite a tough economy, and raised $427,000,” campaign chairman Jeff Triplette said at the United Way annual campaign kick-off luncheon on Wednesday. “That was above our goal.”

This year’s goal is $465,000. (September 16, 2010, Page 1)
