OCALA, Fla. (Sept. 5, 2018) – The City of Ocala is excited to announce the Downtown Ranger Program, a new initiative intended to enhance the customer experience in downtown Ocala.

A special meet and greet event with the downtown rangers, Cindy Paddock and Kelly Mimms, will be held Wednesday, Sept. 12 at 9 a.m. at the Marion Cultural Alliance located at 23 SW Broadway St. This event is free and open to the public.

“The goal of this program is to provide assistance to business owners, residents and visitors in downtown Ocala,” said Kathy Crile, Director, Ocala Recreation and Parks. “This program will also further the City’s efforts to collaborate with Ocala Main Street and the Downtown Business Alliance to enhance the overall customer experience. In addition to serving as ambassadors for the City, these rangers will also provide enhanced safety and security for the downtown area.”

The rangers will have a visible presence throughout downtown Ocala, from the S-Curve north to the Ocala Union Station, seven days a week. The rangers will patrol this area in conjunction with Ocala Police Department officers and City of Ocala Parking Enforcement staff.
