Paid parking put on hold | News
(WMC-TV) - Oxford has ditched its plans to charge people to park on the city's Square, according to The Daily Mississippian.
The DM reports that instead of paid parking, the city will step up enforcement of existing rules to curb the Square's parking problems.
The paper says that public outcry played a role in officials' decision:
In an earlier meeting, the Board of Aldermen decided to delay their decision on signing a contract with Standard Parking to implement paid parking on the Square, a plan that included parking meters around the Square.
The committee mentioned public opinion among the reasons for a Plan B.
