SUFFOLK County Council Cabinet this afternoon voted through the £42.5million of savings and froze council tax for a year.

The move now goes to full council on February 17 and will see the council divest many of its services after losing central Government funding.

The council is looking to outsource some of its libraries and care homes as well as no loner funding its school crossing patrols. Some 1,472 jobsare expected to go by 2012.

Andrea Hill, Suffolk County Council’s chief executive, has spoken to the Bury Free Press about the savings and future for the council in an interview which is published in Friday’s Bury Free Press.
