Twenty jobs to be cut at Bathurst Council

Twenty jobs to be cut at Bathurst Council

Twenty council jobs will be lost in the Bathurst region over the next twelve months, as council reigns in its spending.

The loss of jobs come as part of the 2013/2014 Bathurst Regional Council budget, that will see several cuts totalling 2.2 million dollars.

According to council general manager David Sherley, the job losses would not come from any one area, and any jobs lost would be as a result of natural attrition, not sacking.

Mr Sherley says as positions become vacant, only jobs of a critical nature will be re-advertised, while those of minimal impact to services will be lost.

Almost $1 million will be saved per annum, as a result of the job losses.
