PARIS — The Oxford County Commission ratified a new three-year contract with the union representing the Criminal Investigative Division at Tuesday’s meeting.

The decision came following an executive session by Commissioners Tim Turner of Buckfield, Steve Merrill of Norway and David Duguay of Byron. The two sides have been working on a new deal since the beginning of the year.

The Emergency Management Agency will move from the basement of the Oxford County Courthouse on Western Avenue and into a brighter, more spacious home in the former Ainsworth Building.

The board increased the yearly stipend for John Kimball, the sexton serving three cemeteries in the unorganized territories, from $500 to $600 per cemetery. Commissioners also reviewed the draft road maintenance agreement for plowing and winter road maintenance in Magalloway Plantation.

In other business, commissioners set the pay scale for the sheriff’s clerk from between $17.50 and $19. The board also approved the Sheriff’s Office request to apply for a grant through the Ed MacDonald Safety Enhancement Grant program through the Maine Municipal Association. The funds would be used to purchase safety equipment.

The board also approved a liquor license renewal for the Cupsuptic Lake Park and Campground in Adamstown Township.
