Oxford City Council planned for a work session to discuss how to handle the city's sanitation service during its regular meeting Monday.

According to Oxford Mayor Jerry Rosenberry, the city council will host a special work session April 16 at 6 p.m. at Oxford City Hall. The city would like to hear from its residents about their thoughts on privatizing sanitation services.

"Most cities lose money on that service," said Roseberry.

The Oxford public is encouraged to come to the work session to give input on the topic.

During the meeting, the city council also further clarified the job description of the zoning administrator.

"There's been a bit of confusion of the zoning administrator," said Jerry Roseberry, mayor of Oxford.

The confusion was based around which requests should be handled by the planning commission and which were the responsibility of the zoning administrator. Unless specifically assigned to the planning commission, the request will go to the zoning administrator to be handled.

Also during the meeting, the council conducted the second reading of about 10 ordinances to clarify and separate the penalties.
