The debate over the proposed cuts has just begun. The councils says it needs to cut £46 million over three years. Out of that, it has identified £19.5 million to cut in the coming tax year of 2013 - 2014.
The cuts will be made in all departments, but if the plans are approved, road safety, adult services, and children's support services will face the largest cuts.
