OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - People parking without a permit near the University of Mississippi campus could soon face city fines - or even get a boot on a vehicle for repeated violations.

The Oxford Board of Aldermen voted this week to require paid permits for parking on two streets near campus for more than two hours a day.

The Oxford Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/2cG136X ) the cost is $50 for residents and $25 for their visitors.

Tyler Avenue and Fifth Streets are often clogged with campus commuters. Although the two streets already have a two-hour parking limit, it has rarely been enforced.

The pay-to-park plan for the two streets takes effect Oct. 6.

It will be enforced from 8 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday through Friday, but not on game days or for church parking on weekends.
