Un­of­fi­cial Web­mas­ter Michael Dale un­veiled Ox­ford’s new Web site dur­ing Mon­day’s Ox­ford City Coun­cil Meet­ing.

Dale pre­sented the new site which fea­tures search ca­pa­bil­i­ties, a com­mu­nity cal­en­dar and a blog that the mayor and city coun­cil mem­bers can post to through­out the year. Coun­cil Mem­ber Hoyt Oliver said Dale could soon be of­fi­cially named the city’s web­mas­ter, but a fi­nan­cial ar­range­ment would have be agreed upon.

• Ox­ford Po­lice Chief Clark Miller re­ported the de­part­ment re­cently solved the bur­glary of a house on Fletcher Street.

Valu­able items in­clud­ing fam­ily heir­looms were stolen from the house from mid-Novem­ber to the end of the year, Fletcher said. The items were be­ing trans­ported to a house on Emory Street where the sus­pects lived.

Of­fi­cers re­sponded to the house af­ter a fight broke be­tween two of the sus­pects. Once at the scene they dis­cov­ered the stolen items. A con­ver­sa­tion be­tween of­fi­cers con­nected the two cases, Fletcher said.

Only a por­tion of the items stolen were re­cov­ered, Fletcher said. Acoridng to him,, a large part of the stash was sold to pawn­shops and on eBay.

Fletcher said the de­part­ment also busted a drink­ing party at Ox­ford Col­lege of Emory Univer­sity though no stu­dents were taken to jail.
