Bud Tinch directs traffic at the corner of Main Street and Judson Avenue next to Lincoln Elementary School. “This is a busy intersection,” he said. “Sometimes drivers can’t see. Sometimes kids can’t see.” The city now pays for most crossing guards. The City Council is set to vote Monday on a plan to stop paying the cost of guards for District 202 and all private schools. The city will share guard costs with District 65 but decrease payments every year until 2027. Credit: Richard Cahan
