TOWN OF OXFORD

WATER SYSTEM ACQUISITION

On May 7, 2014 at 7:00 p.m., the Town of Oxford will hold its Annual Town Meeting where there will be an Article asking the Town to consider appropriating $9.3 million to cover the purchase of the Water Supply System.

The following is a list of questions that Town residents have been asking. Any additional questions should be directed to the Oxford Department of Public Works at 508-987-6006 or email to: dpw@town.oxford.ma.us
