OXFORD – The Village of Oxford Board of Trustees and Mayor Terry Stark met Tuesday night to discuss plans for the future of the village and to re-organize after elections last month. While no drastic changes were made at the meeting, ideas for projects concerning the future of the village were considered.
For residents unaware, the code for the Village of Oxford is available at oxfordny.com and is known as the “E-Code.” Here, residents are able to brush up on all of the Oxford policies that are enforceable. The village pays an annual fee for the code to be converted to an electronic version. Mayor Terry Stark noted that this is not only convenient for code enforcement but for the public as well, who is more than welcome to visit the site and browse around.
The Village of Oxford Police Department is interested in pursuing a two-vehicle, heated facility to store their vehicles. Due to the costly communications equipment and electronics, police hold concerns about the vehicles staying out in the cold during the winter months. A representative from the police department was not on hand, therefore this project will be discussed at a future meeting in regards to necessity, location, funding and building.
It was also discussed, with regard to public works, that the village is responsible for the new lights - period pieces - on the bridge. In relation to the lighting within the village, Mayor Stark expressed his intent to send informative pamphlets to the residents explaining the process of getting a street light with a blown bulb fixed. The public is asked to get the pole number and call the village clerk, who will then address the issue through the proper channels to fix said light.
