                    New parking changes OK’d by aldermen

                    The Oxford Board of Aldermen approved new ordinances Tuesday that make parking enforcement stricter around the premium spots on the Square.
                    The board voted unanimously to accept the ordinance changes that change the two-hour parking limit from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. While the two-hour parking limit has only traditionally been enforced Monday through Friday, the ordinance already on the books allows for Saturday enforcement as well. Standard Parking, a Chicago-based company hired by the city this summer to manage the parking downtown, will be enforcing the two-hour limit on Saturdays. (September 19, 2012, Page 1)
