Shropshire councils count cost of Government cuts
TOWN HALL chiefs in Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin were today counting the cost of massive budget reductions set to leave them millions of pounds out of pocket.
Telford & Wrekin Council today said it was now facing cuts of about £17 million over the next two years, £12 million of which will fall next year.
The council said overall it faced £25 million worth of cuts over the next four years.
The handout to the authority is £84 million, compared to £101 million last year.
Finance bosses at Shropshire Council are still going over the figures.
