Agree­ment on trans­fer

The Oban Times - - News -

MEM­BERS of the High­land Coun­cil’s Places Com­mit­tee have agreed to trans­fer the High­land Coun­cil ranger ser­vice to High Life High­land.

Com­mit­tee chair­man Coun­cil­lor Al­lan Hen­der­son said: ‘In the past few years the num­ber of rangers has fallen from 22 to 10.5 full-time equiv­a­lent posts to meet sav­ing tar­gets. I be­lieve this pro­posal to trans­fer the team to High Life High­land is a great op­por­tu­nity for the ranger ser­vice to grow and con­tinue to play its im­por­tant role in schools and com­mu­ni­ties.’

Work on the trans­fer will start later this year. In the mean­time, the ranger ser­vice will op­er­ate as nor­mal.
