Hampshire County Council has an annual budget of almost £2 billion pounds. That money is spent on public services like education, roads, libraries, public health and waste disposal.
So far - since central Government's funding began to be cut in 2008 - the council has saved £340 million from its budget.
Because of the rising cost of adult social care - like services for the elderly - it has increased council tax. Despite that, it says it faces a budget shortfall of £140 million.
A final decision on where the cuts will be come wil be made by full council on November 2.
