300 Jobs to go ?

Another issue discussed at yesterday's Council meeting concerned a press release from the LibDem/SNP Administration which indicates that more than 300 jobs could be lost as part of a package of proposals to save £16m over 3 years. That the announcement was serious enough goes without saying however the way the news was made public caused us major concern. In spite of internal briefings and access to some reports no detail had been revealed and certainly not the scale of these proposals, prior to the media being briefed. A report will now be submitted to the September Council meeting which gives us a few weeks to scrutinise the proposals and take a collective view.
