Town of Oxford

The Town of Oxford, NY encompasses approximately 132 square miles, and includes the Village of Oxford, which is about 1 square mile in size. Often confused for one another, the Oxford Village Goverment is responsible for what takes place only within that smaller area and is separate from the Oxford Town Government. The Town Government is responsible for overseeing all the communities within that larger area, handling road maintenance, the community pool and more.
