Over 100 York Council employees have suffered compulsory redundancy since April 2011.
In addition 420 have opted for voluntary redundancy.
The report – being considered by a Council committee tomorrow does not say how much the redundancies have cost taxpayers. However, after taking into account pension contributions, this is thought likely to be a 7 figure number.
Most of the redundancies occurred between May 2011 and April 2015 when Labour were in control of the local Council. Since May 2015 there have been a total of 43 redundancies, the majority of which have been voluntary.
Recent events suggest that the Council has shed too many experienced managers. As a result it struggles to cope with unusual events such as the recent floods.
