Default Moneysaving Idea for WCBC

Perhaps they could take a look at this from Flintshire council:

BBC News - Top jobs cut at Flintshire council to save cash

In particular this line 'Despite the council facing an unprecedented financial challenge due to reductions in government funding, the protection of local services has been a priority'.

Don't think WCBC will be following their lead somehow, quite the opposite.
NJones and MP1953 like this.

It is so strange that two Authorities neighboring each other are dealing with budget issues so differently-- Has Wrexham been overstaffed for so long it became the norm whereas Flintshire dealt with staffing levels as they occurred.
Why are we in such a bad state in Wrexham -- how many staff have had their last day working today- these are the ones losing out.

Sorry dylan can you clarify? WCBC management structure stands at 13 whereas FCC is looking to reduce from 18 to 10 so how are WCBC overstaffed in this respect? From what I've read in the media over the past couple of years, WCBC have already undertaken a reduction in senior management and other staff reductions have been going on since 2010 so WCBC are ahead of FCC.

What I was trying to highlight is that Wrexham seem to be way ahead of other North Wales counties as far as moving from the staffing cuts to service cuts. The WCBC structure has lost one Chief Officer this week - John Bradbury with another couple going through the process at the moment and will undoubtedly be the same as Flintshire by July.
