A third of crossing guards in Attleboro, Massachusetts, have had their positions cut due to budgets cuts in the city.
According to the Sun Chronicle, eight out of the 24 positions have been cut due to the cuts from the city council back in June.
The police chief told the Sun Chronicle that he opposed the cuts and was not told which locations would be let go.
The cut crossing guard positions save the city $60,000.

- Elizabeth Street at Water Street
- James Street at Brownell Street
