Mike Starkie, Copeland's directly elected major, has put forwards the suggestion to remove the chief executive position.
The role is currently held by Paul Walker, who is thought to earn around £110,000 per year.
Copeland Council say the proposal will be discussed at a meeting of the executive on September 22:
The mayor will be taking a report to a meeting of the Executive on September 22, where he will ask the Executive to consider the deletion of the role of Chief Executive from the establishment of Copeland Borough Council.
If accepted, the Executive will make recommendations to Council at its meeting on October 1 to consider the proposals, and in particular the statutory role of Head of Paid Service.”
