THERE will be NO cuts to jobs and front line services after East Dunbartonshire Council (EDC) set its budget for the coming year.

Councillors agreed a fiscal package last Thursday night, incorporating the £3.4million worth of savings, which will be achieved by not filling vacancies and selling off properties, agreed at a special meeting in December.

EDC agreed to freeze council tax for a further year and will maintain Police Board funding and the teacher-pupil ratio.

In addition, £1milion has been found to fund a range of programmes aimed at enhancing communities.
