To the residents of Oxford,

In an earlier bulletin, the Town Manager indicated that the services the town of Oxford provides to its residents, in response to COVID-19, was fluid and therefore subject to change. The situation has evolved to where the Board of Selectmen and Town Manager believe it necessary to limit access to the town office during normal business hours in order to mitigate the risk of potential viral transmission/exposure to our employees and the public.

Effective April 7, 2020: 

Per Governor Mills’ Executive Order, the Recycling Center will be closed Tuesday, April 7, 2020 until further notice.  For the time being, all recyclable materials may be disposed of with regular household waste at the Transfer Station.  Residents are encouraged to store their recyclables at home until after the Executive Order is lifted and the Recycling Center reopens.

Effective 8:00 AM, Friday, March 20th, access to the town office will be temporarily restricted until further notice. It is our hope that this crisis passes quickly and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this action causes.

Many services such as re-registrations of vehicles and ATV’s, payment of taxes, etc. are available online. Please go to www.oxfordmaine.org for links to those services many of you utilize on an annual basis. To limit your exposure to the virus, we strongly urge all residents to take advantage of online services.

Because currency is in circulation on average for 5-15 years and known to carry various forms of bacteria, we respectfully request payment for any fee be made in the form of a check or debit/credit card.

We also encourage everyone to take advantage of recently enacted legislation which extends the time you can legally operate a motor vehicle with an expired registration or temporary plates without penalty.  Please check our website for more information.

There will be no reduction in staffing at the town office. There is still ample work available to keep the office staff busy. This crisis will provide employees time to accomplish tasks that have been put on hold and may create a window of opportunity for cross-training.

As always, we appreciate the support town’s employees have received since the inception of this national emergency.

 

Please monitor the town’s website and Facebook page for further updates.

Finally, stay safe, healthy and please feel free to contact the town manager if you have any questions or concerns.
