Oxford Borough may consider anti-discrimination ordinance

03/24/2015 12:05PM ● By Steven Hoffman


Oxford Borough mayor Geoff Henry is proposing that the borough adopt an anti-discrimination ordinance similar to one that has been adopted by more than two dozen other Pennsylvania communities.

At the March 16 council meeting, Henry said that he would like the Codes Committee to review the ordinance in advance of having borough council consider it for approval. The language of the ordinance would be consistent with what other communities have established.

In other business at the council meeting, Hal Warner, executive director of the Jennersville YMCA, told borough council that plans are moving forward for Healthy Kids Day, which will take place on April 25 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. This is the third year that Healthy Kids Day will take place in downtown Oxford.

“We really enjoy coming down here and bringing a crowd of people,” Warner explained. “We feel like this is where Healthy Kids Day belongs.”

Donna Hossler, the new executive director of Oxford Mainstreet, Inc. (OMI), introduced herself to borough council, saying that the first few weeks on the job have been very busy.
