Nottinghamshire County Council will announce its final budget proposals for next year ahead of other local authorities.
The council’s cabinet considered the proposals at a meeting on Wednesday, February 9, and the final plans will be decided at the full council meeting on February 24. The authority needs to save around £87m next year due to reduced Government grants and an increase in demand for a number of key services.
Around £42m of the savings will be reinvested in children, social workers, the elderly and people with learning disabilities.
The council is also proposing to freeze council tax for a second year in a row. But residents across the county are still angry about cutbacks in services such as libraries and voluntary groups.
A five month public consultation on the budget attracted responses from 10,000 people.
