Noise and Litter Citations
Thanks to everyone who came to our Open Property Manager / Owner forum on July 25 to discuss high-risk house parties.
If you missed the forum, we updated attendees on recent work that the Off-Campus Partnerships and Interventions workgroup of the Alcohol Coordinating Committee has taken on. Namely, when a resident off-campus recieves a noise or litter citation from Oxford Police, all residents at that address will receive a joint e-mail and mailed letter from the City of Oxford and Miami University. The letter acknowledges the citation and informs students of community expectations. Upon a second citation (within a single semester), residents are asked to come in for a meeting with city and university staff, and a community member. Additional citations could trigger more formal action from our Office of Ethics and Student Conflict Resolution (though this will not occur during fall semester).
As a result of the property manager / owner forum, we will now be copying property managers and owners on the emails to residents who were cited. We hope you will join us as we work to educate students about community expectations and safe, responsible hosting.
