Mayor Bob Buckhorn has received a letter from Steve Daignault, the City of Tampa’s Public Works and Utility Services Administrator, announcing his retirement. Daignault decided to retire from the City of Tampa and will travel with his wife, Victoria.

"Steve’s whole life has been in the service of others, and he did a great job for the people of Tampa. He certainly made my transition to mayor very easy. He leaves big shoes to fill," said Mayor Bob Buckhorn.

Daignault, a City of Tampa employee for over eight years, was appointed as the Public Works and Utility Services Administrator in 2004. During his tenure at the City of Tampa, Daignault was responsible for directing, coordinating, and managing the departmental operations for Contract Administration, Public Works, Solid Waste, Wastewater, and Water, as well as the Stormwater and Transportation divisions.

Prior to the City of Tampa, he held several positions in government. His first career began in the US Navy where he retired as a Captain after 24 years. His second career was serving the citizens of Cape Coral for six years, eventually retiring as the City Manager.

Daignault's last day at City Hall will be Friday, February 3, 2012.

The City will begin the search to fill the Public Works and Utility Services Administrator position.
