Council jobs and services face axe in Buckinghamshire
Jobs and services at Buckinghamshire County Council are set to be cut as it slashes £9.2m from its budget.
The council says the savings are needed after a cut in the government grant to the local authority.
The budget, going before the council on Thursday, includes a £5.4m cut to children and young people services.
This includes a £226,000 cut in the funding of child protection and assessment staffing, but the council is hoping to avoid compulsory job losses.
The council's budget for 2010/2011 is £303m.
The council says in a report that the £9.2m of cuts come on top of £52m of savings over the next four years already planned.
The budget also calls for savings of £541,000 in the council's adults and family wellbeing services.
This will include reductions in budgets for new library books, support for carers and care for older people in their homes.
