45 jobs face axe at city council

By Joseph Aldridge


Tauranga City Council has started a major restructure that could see 45 jobs lost and save the organisation $2.7 million.

Announced to staff yesterday by chief executive Leigh Auton, the organisation review proposes to cut 36 fulltime equivalent (FTE) positions, disestablish a further 19 FTE positions which are currently vacant and add 9.5 new FTE positions - resulting in a net loss of 45.5 FTE positions.

A further 32.3 FTE positions were expected to be disestablished when the STAR document scanning project finishes in early 2014.

Mr Auton said the review was the council's response to the "changing economic, social, political, cultural and environmental climate".
