OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Oxford is considering a policy change that could require underground installation for more utility lines.

The city already requires utility lines to be buried when new homes or businesses are built.

The Oxford Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/rekix0 ) that a proposed new policy would require utility burial when people do a substantial renovation or expansion of existing structures.

City Planner Andrea Correll says there has been some confusion about what constitutes a substantial renovation. She says it must equal or exceed 50 percent of the actual cash value of the structure, before the improvement is started.
