Oxford cracking down on junk vehicles

In an effort to keep the city in tip-top shape, Oxford police are cracking down on junk cars.

Oxford Police Chief Dave Harvey told the city council that he and his officers are diligently checking the city for junk vehicles and issuing 15-day warning notices for those residents found to be in violation.

Initially, three residents were given warning notices, though one resident was later found to not be in violation.

Harvey said Wednesday that eight warning notices had been passed out thus far, and that everyone was complying.

If residents are given a notification and fail to comply, they are issued city ordinance citations and court dates.

If resolved prior to the court date, the citation will be reduced to a warning; if not, a fine is assessed.

"Things look much better than several years back according to photos I have seen in old files," said Harvey. "All in all the citizens in Oxford try to keep their town looking clean and inviting."
