Tampa Bay Water general manager to leave utility

By Craig Pittman

CLEARWATER – Gerald Seeber, who has been in charge of running Tampa Bay Water for five years, is ready to move on from what he once called "a really cool job."

Seeber, the wholesale utility's general manager, has not resigned — not yet. But he has notified the utility's board that he's looking to return to a city government job somewhere, the board members revealed during their meeting Monday.

Why quit? "I like working at a regional level," Seeber explained after the meeting. "But I miss interacting with John Q. Public."
