OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — The Village of Taylor and Lafayette County have agreed to road maintenance interlocal agreement.

The Oxford Eagle reports that agreement provides that county and village officials will jointly make decisions on maintenance issues.

Taylor Mayor Jim Hamilton says the county will now maintain the roads for his town.

Hamilton says the pact is an acknowledgement of what the county and village have been doing.

Taylor is located south of Oxford.
