250 council jobs may be lost as part of a drive by East Sussex County Council to save £23m in the next financial year.
East Sussex County Council’s cabinet will consider various proposals for how possible savings could be made in the next financial year as part of wider plans to save up to £90m by 2019.
As well as potential job losses, the council will also target services.
Cllr David Elkin, deputy leader and lead member for resources, warned: ‘The level of savings the county council has to make over the next three years will undoubtedly mean changes to the services we deliver and, in some cases, stopping services altogether.’
Cllr Elkin also added that the council wanted to be open about possible cuts and he stressed that they will work hard to focus resources on those who most need them.
‘This is just the start of a lengthy process,’ the councillor said, ‘and no decisions have been made. We are keen to hear from members of the public about what they think our priorities should be and welcome their ideas and suggestions.’
The cabinet meeting will take place 13 October 13.
