Welcome to the Charter Township of Oxford. We hope you find our site helpful and the information you need easy to find. Please feel free to call our office with any questions you may have.
Stay Home, Stay Safe: Oxford Township Office to remain closed to public until 8 a.m. Monday, June 15
As a result of Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's decision to extend her stay-at-home executive order through 11:59 p.m. Friday, June 12, the Oxford Township Office (300 Dunlap Rd.) will remain closed to in-person traffic. Barring any further extensions of the governor's order, the township office will reopen to the public on Monday, June 15 at 8 a.m.
Elected officials and township employees are continuing to work from home and at the office, perform their duties as needed and respond to citizen inquiries and concerns. They can be reached via the email addresses listed on the township website under the various departments. Please note: Although the township hall is closed to in-person traffic, the township government is still conducting business on a daily basis.
A helping hand and a box of food are just a phone call away. If you are a senior citizen (age 60 and older) or an individual with an underlying health condition living in Oxford Township or Village and you're having difficulty obtaining food or other essentials during the COVID-19 outbreak, please call (248) 462-9997. Oxford Township will connect you with local resources, including Oxford/Orion FISH, Meals on Wheels and area churches. If you need food now, the township will deliver an emergency box (filled with non-perishable items) right to your doorstep. Again, all you have to do is call (248) 462-9997.
Sewer bills are due June 5, not May 5
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, payment of the current quarterly sewer bill (mailed on April 6) will NOT be due on May 5. Instead, sewer customers will have until June 5 to pay their bills without incurring any penalties. Township sewer customers who are enrolled in the automatic bill payment program will also be given an extension. Payments will be automatically deducted from checking or saving accounts on May 20, instead of April 20.
Sewer customers can mail their payments to the Oxford Township Office (300 Dunlap Rd. Oxford, MI 48371). Or they can place them in the drop box located outside and to the right of the township hall's main entrance. No cash payments in the drop box, please. Sewer customers can also pay their bills via credit or debit card by visiting www.GovPayNow.com or calling 1-888-604-7888. If paying by credit/debit card, the Pay Location Code # for Oxford Township is 7431. A service fee is charged for credit/debit card transactions.
Building Dept. is open via phone, mail and email
Oxford Township's building department is open for business! Here is the temporary inspection schedule, which will take effect the week of May 11 and remain in effect until further notice:
Tuesdays -- Inspections for grading, soil erosion, mechanical, electrical & plumbing ONLY.
Thursdays -- Inspections for building & zoning.
Although the building department is operating, the township hall will remain closed to the public. Therefore, all inspection requests must be made by telephone (248-628-9787 Ext. 150) before 3 p.m. Please include the permit number, address, lockbox code, level of inspection being requested and phone number. Please include all of the aforementioned information in your voicemail as it will be converted into an email.
The township is accepting permit applications via email (send to email@example.com), mail and the drop box located near the employee entrance on the office's south side. Permit applications can be found online at oxfordtownship.org/Permits-Forms/Permits
When submitting the application, please include a copy of the check. Original checks should be placed in the drop box near the township hall's front entrance.
ABSENT VOTER BALLOTS
The following information is from the State of Michigan:
All registered voters in Michigan have the right to vote by mail. It's a safe way to vote and protect your health, and the process is secure and accurate. To vote by mail, fill out the simple application located on this page, print and sign it, and then mail or email it to your local clerk (you can find their address and email here). When filling out the application, if you check the box to be added to the permanent absent voter list, you'll get an application mailed to you before every election. But there's no commitment. Even if you apply to vote by mail, you can change your mind and vote in person.
Absent voter ballot applications
All registered voters are eligible to vote by mail
Due to the passage of the statewide ballot proposal 18-3, all eligible and registered voters in Michigan may now request an absent voter ballot without providing a reason.
Check your voter registration at Michigan Voter Information Center Michigan.gov/Vote
Requesting an absent voter ballot
Your request for an absent voter ballot must be in writing and can be submitted to your city or township clerk. (For assistance in obtaining the address of your city or township clerk, see Michigan.gov/Vote) You must request an absent voter ballot by submitting the application, a letter, a postcard, or a pre-printed application form obtained from your local clerk's office. Requests may be returned by hand, via postal mail, fax, or email, as long as a signature is visible.
Requests to have an absent voter ballot mailed to you must be received by your clerk no later than 5 p.m. the Friday before the election. If you’re already registered at your current address, you can request an absent voter ballot in person at your clerk’s office anytime up to 4 p.m. on the day prior to the election. If you’re registering to vote or updating your address by appearing at your clerk’s office on Election Day, you can request an absent voter ballot at the same time you register. If you request your AV ballot the day before the election or on Election Day, you must vote the ballot in the clerk's office.
Once your request is received by the local clerk, your signature on the request will be checked against your voter registration record before a ballot is issued. You must be a registered voter to receive an absent voter ballot, but you can register and apply for an absent voter ballot at the same time. Requests for absent voter ballots are processed immediately. Absent voter ballots may be issued to you at your home address or any address outside of your city or township of residence.
After receiving your absent voter ballot, you have until 8 p.m. on Election Day to complete the ballot and return it to the clerk's office. Your ballot will not be counted unless your signature is on the return envelope and matches your signature on file. If you received assistance voting the ballot, then the signature of the person who helped you must also be on the return envelope. Only you, a family member or person residing in your household, a mail carrier, or election official is authorized to deliver your signed absent voter ballot to your clerk's office.
If an emergency, such as a sudden illness or family death prevents you from reaching the polls on Election Day, you may request an emergency absent voter ballot. Requests for an emergency ballot must be submitted after the deadline for regular absent voter ballots has passed but before 4 p.m. on Election Day. The emergency must have occurred at a time which made it impossible for you to apply for a regular absent voter ballot. Please contact the Oxford Township Clerk's Office (248-628-9787 Extension 106 or 107) for more information about emergency absent voter ballots.
