Future of "Urban Rangers" under threat

The future of "Urban Rangers" will be decided at a meeting in Lincoln tonight, as the city council attempts to save nearly one million pounds from its budget. The Rangers, who patrol around 60 green spaces across Lincoln are used to help keep things like anti-social behaviour under control.

Council bosses are deciding whether to withdraw the service, along with that of the Commons Warden. Withdrawal of both services would save the council around 500 thousand pounds over five years.

Decision to be made on City of Lincoln Council £1m saving

A final decision will be made today on plans to save nearly £1 million pounds from the City of Lincoln Council budget.

Reduced government funding means the council needs to find the savings with a further £3 million of cuts needed by 2017.

The budget for the City of Lincoln Council will be approved later today.
