The number of senior managers at a council in Northamptonshire has been cut in a bid to save £175,000.
It is part of £1m savings that Daventry District Council is making by the end of the financial year.
The council had three executive directors, all on salaries of £80,856 who took it in turns to act as managing director.
From now on there will be one managing director who will receive £98,500 and a deputy on a salary of £85,000.
Elsewhere in the council six corporate managers have been replaced by three posts - a community manager, a business manager and a resources manager.
Leader of Daventry District Council, Chris Millar, said: "Like other councils, we find ourselves with a particularly difficult grant settlement and are having to cut our cloth to fit.
"We would not be taking these measures if they weren't absolutely necessary."
