Gerald J. Seeber has been Temple Terrace city manager since 2013.

TEMPLE TERRACE – City Manager Gerald J. Seeber announced Friday (Feb. 5) that he will retire May 5 after three years as Temple Terrace’s top executive.

“I have worked in city management for 40 years. I like this work; I always have,” Seeber said. “I am at a point in my life where it’s just time for me to do something else with my time.”

A nationwide search for a new city manager will begin in mid-February.

Seeber, 62, became the Temple Terrace city manager in April 2013 after five years at the helm of Tampa Bay Water in Clearwater. Seeber brought a wealth of city management experience to Temple Terrace.

He started out in 1976 in Middletown, PA, and served as village manager of Brown Deer, Wis. from 1982 to 1988. In Florida, he was city manager of New Port Richey from 1988 to 2004, and Oviedo from 2004 to 2008.

In Temple Terrace, Seeber implemented a strategic plan titled “Your City. Our Future. A Community Driven Plan.” He described the 309-page document as a blueprint for the city’s continual improvement in municipal services. It’s an important goal for any municipality, he said, once telling a colleague: “City government touches people’s lives in many ways, each and every day.”

Seeber said he plans to spend more time with family — and explore new adventures.

“My wife and I have children in Florida, Colorado and Illinois, and we have siblings in Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Florida that we want to see more frequently than we have in the past,” he said. “We have a long bucket list, and we are planning to start working on that list May 6.”
