OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - A special call meeting by the Oxford School Board was held Tuesday as the district plans to relocate Oxford Elementary.

At the meeting bids were made to buy the school's current property. The City of Oxford placed the highest bid at $2,000,000 with hopes to move the Oxford Police Department there.

Mayor Robyn Tannehill confirms the board denied the bid claiming the property is worth more than the proposed bid. Tannehill says if an agreement is not made, taxes could raise in order to relocate the police department.
