Controversial plans to privatise parts of Cornwall's benefits and libraries have been put on the back burner.
The row which could have meant up to a thousand staff being transferred has already cost the leader of the Council, Alec Robertson, his job.
Now councillors have voted to look at different options.
Chris Gibson speaks for Cornwall Anti Cuts Alliance:
"People enjoy the good life in Cornwall but this has brought them up very sharply and I think Cornish people know when enough is enough and this is very definitely enough.
"It's taken 100 years to build up a very sophisticated bit of Rolls Royce machinery that is local government and this scheme is going to mean that there are going to be more people made redundant from Cornwall Council than remain at Cornwall Council."
Cornwall Councillors have also voted to give themselves a pay rise, effective from next May.
Basic pay will rise to £14'600 a year.
Allowances will go up too, after a recommendation from an independent report.
