COUNCIL taxpayers face a hike in their bills for the first time in four years and up to 150 jobs will be axed as East Sussex County Council (ESCC) faces mammoth cuts in its budget.

Members of the authority’s cabinet met on Tuesday (January 28) to discuss how County Hall could make £27.7 million in savings over the next financial year, which starts on April 1.

Proposals put forward include axing 100 to 150 jobs and imposing a 1.95 per cent increase in ESCC’s share of the council tax.
