Parking around the Square will change from a two-hour limit to a three-hour limit in about 45 days after members of the Board of Aldermen had no objections to the recommendation by the Oxford Downtown Parking Advisory Commission to change the parking limit. (May 8, 2013, Page 1A)

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)
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.
