OXFORD, AL (WBRC) - City leaders in Oxford say the discovery of ancient Indian remains at a new city sports complex is costing the city $12,000 per day.

Workers at the site dug up in February what was believed to be ancient Indian remains. The city's permit says the corps must be notified if something like that happens.

The construction company is contracted to be paid $12,000 per day for every day it does not rain and work is stopped for something beyond its control.

City officials are scheduled to hold a meeting April 5th to resolve the matter.
