A pre-Christmas shedding of jobs in Tauranga.
Tauranga City Council has cut 30 of its 520 full-time positions following a restructuring review.
That number is down from 45 originally proposed.
Bay of Plenty Polytechnic says Government funding cuts and rising costs have meant they have had to cut eight full-time jobs, or two percent of their staff.
Chief Executive Alan Hampton says the Polytechnic would not fill some staff vacancies and there have been some voluntary redundancies.
And APN New Zealand has announced it is closing its large printing site in Tauranga with the loss of 27 jobs.
The closure of the operation will happen next year and will mean the Bay of Plenty Times will be printed in Auckland and shipped down for delivery.
