Northamptonshire County Council is set to discuss proposals for another £10m of cuts in a desperate bid to balance its books.
The new plans include scrapping all bus subsidies, cutting highways and trading standards budgets and closing 21 smaller libraries unless community groups run them instead.
The council's cabinet will also consider reducing councillors' allowances and a pay freeze for staff.
It comes after auditors said the original budget proposal was potentially unlawful.
The authority's already agreed to sell off its new 50 million pound headquarters in a bid to stave off the financial crisis which has seen almost all new spending banned.
