The City of Lincoln council says its being forced to make front line cuts because of drastically reduced Government funding.
The leader of the council says he's also angry about the situation - given that he helped set up the Rangers just a few years ago.
"This is a direct consequence of cuts in Government grant. It means that excellent services like the Urban Rangers service are going to be affected. We can't make that scale of savings without services being affected."
