Highland Council - more cuts needed over and above the £31 million that went out to consultation

Looks like there's been a rethink at Glenurquart Road over how much needs to be saved, it seems cuts will have to bite deeper than we were told at the public meeting in Rosebank this summer.
'Mr Alston said that proposals which went out to public consultation amounted to £31million of cuts, leaving a further £11million to be found.'
There's more in the P&J including news that a proposal to cut councillors' wages by 10% was voted down. Cllr Roddy Balfour was also complaining that Highland Council was failing local democracy since changes to its structure in 2007.
Troubled times ahead as the Council searches for more savings?
