All spending which is not "absolutely essential" will be stopped at Wolverhampton City Council as finance chiefs struggle to cope with a growing cash flow crisis.
Councillors at tomorrow's cabinet meeting will be asked to approve a range of emergency measures as leaders warn the authority faces insolvency within two years if they cannot turn the situation around.
Other measures include:
- Implement 165 savings proposals currently being consulted on sooner than expected
- Find another £5million of savings on top of that already identified in 2014/15
- "Faster and deeper" cuts than those previously proposed
- Reducing the council's redundancy policy to the legal minimum
