Oxford Borough, East Nottingham modify multi-municipal agreement
By Steven Hoffman
In recent weeks, Oxford Borough and East Nottingham Township both agreed to advertise a multi-municipal agreement that is being modified slightly. The new agreement will have language in it that includes the Oxford Area Sewer Authority in the effort to work out a long-range plan to provide public sewage services to the Oxford area.
Oxford Borough Council authorized the advertising of the revised multi-municipal agreement at its Feb. 20 meeting.
In other business at that meeting, borough council also approved the purchase of street lights from PECO for $14,015. The borough is switching to more energy-efficient lighting, and officials expect to be able to save up to $20,000 annually as a result.
Borough council approved the hiring of a public works employee, and also authorized Police Chief John Slauch to advertise to hire two part-time parking enforcement employees at $10.45 an hour. There is funding in the police department budget to cover the costs for the parking enforcement employees.
Robert Ketcham submitted a letter of interest to serve on the Civil Service Commission. He will be serving an unexpired term. John C. Reynolds, Jr. offered a letter of interest to serve on the Oxford Area Recreation Authority. He will also be filling an unexpired term.
