Cornwall gets its final chance to have a say on cuts.
The Council says it needs to save £24 million pounds over the next year.
Everything from buses to care for our most vulnerable is in the firing line.
It is the last of a series of public meetings in each of the 19 community network areas over September and October to find out what locals as well as voluntary and community groups think.
Alex Folkes is in charge of the purse strings: "Every single public meeting I've been to so far has come up with something that we can change and we'll be looking to do so. It won't delay the process. But, to me, this is fundamental. We shouldn't be taking decisions sitting in an ivory tower at County Hall.
"The process of talking to the public was always intended to be a learning exercise. We're quite happy to make changes to this, it won't delay the process. But with such fundamental changes it is only right that the people of Cornwall should have their say."
The final event is at County Hall in Truro on Thursday from 6.30pm will be webcast live on the Council website here
Viewers will be able to join in with the discussion online using the live chat facility.
The Council's Cabinet will meet on 14 November to decide on the budget to present to the full Council at its meeting on 26 November.
