Council considers job cuts: icKent reports that Thanet Council is considering cuts to highly-paid staff to avoid a council tax hike.
Documents leaked to the Isle of Thanet Gazette show chief executive Richard Samuel is considering cutting two posts to save £100,000.
A review of managers at the authority began in the summer, in a bid to save cash and ''streamline'' the council.
The chief executive has drawn up a seven-page consultation document which includes seven options for change.
The proposals include axing at least one of the three directors, thought to be earning more than £70,000 each."
