At the meeting, Council Leader, Ivor Hyslop said "In the next financial year our Council must make savings of £7.2 million, having already made reductions of £29.3 million over the previous three years. To continue delivering balanced budgets we must save nearly as much again - £27 million over the coming three years.
Our budget avoids compulsory redundancies, supports small businesses through a package of targeted measures and expands our graduate employment and apprenticeship schemes.
We are continuing to support civic pride initiatives and this year make specific provision, in the run-up to the 2014 Commonwealth Games, to recognise and support sporting excellence. We are also introducing Community Commissioning Pilots and support for burial grounds maintenance.
We also recognise the importance of reducing our Council's physical office estate and carbon emissions."
