Council will not fund Town Rangers

A ballot of levy payers has voted not to continue with Boston BID (Business Improvement District) for another five years.

Out of 239 votes cast, 115 were in favour - 48 per cent, with 50 per cent needed for BID to win another term. BID is due to come to an end at the end of November.

Cllr Peter Bedford, leader of Boston Borough Council, said: "The council regrets that the ballot has gone against the continuation of Boston BID.

"I do need to scotch immediately rumours already doing the rounds that the council will fund the Town Rangers. There is no truth in this. The council has no plans to pick up the bill for the Rangers."
