Scottish Borders Council has set out it's budget proposals for the next year.
The local authority needs to make savings of £3.8 million between 2013-2014, and a further 27.5 million over the next 5 years.
They have honoured an agreement with staff to make no compulsory redundancies, but have made changes to staff terms and conditions.
That means new staff will be placed on a different rate, and there will no longer be pay awards of incremental pay increases.
£191 million will be spent on the Borders' infrastructure over the next 10 years, including projects like Town Centre Regeneration for Galashiels, Selkirk and Newtown St Boswells.
£450,000 has been earmarked for flood protection in Jedburgh after the Skiprunning burn burst its banks last year.
