Oxford council kicks off new year on Jan. 6

The Oxford City Council held its first meeting of the New Year on Jan. 4 with a new member. Sue Dale, employed by Oxford College as its Human Resources Manager was elected last November to a four-year term, replacing the retiring Emma Lou Patterson. Dale was joined by newly re-elected members Jim Windham and Terry Smith. The terms of the remaining council members George Holt, Hoyt Oliver and Frank Davis will expire in 2012.

The City Council renewed the annual contracts of City Clerk Carol Poole; Police Chief Clark Miller; City Attorney David Strickland; Municipal Court Judge Steven A. Hathorn; and Municipal Court Solicitor Quader Baig. Oxford Mayor Jerry Roseberry said Poole’s duties were recently expanded to include management of the city’s daily operations and her new title will be City Clerk/City Administrator.

Committee assignments were made by Roseberry who said he planned to take advantage of Dale’s expertise by naming her chair of the personnel committee. Dale has a master’s degree in business management and brings a background of senior level management in healthcare operations to her new assignment. Dale is married to Brian Dale, pastor of Allen Memorial United Methodist Church, and has two sons, Michael, a student at Emory University, and David, a student at Newton High School

Roseberry announced that the city has signed a contract with Robert and Company to rewrite the city’s zoning ordinances and the loan financing the new community center/city hall has closed and construction of the new building is underway. He also announced an upcoming work session which will include a presentation on comprehensive planning by the Newton County Collaborative. The meeting will be at 6 p.m. on Jan. 25 in the Oxford community center and will be open to the public.
