“The City of Tampa is at a critical time and we’re making historic and unprecedented investments in our infrastructure as we implement the stormwater project, plan for the future of Tampa’s transportation system, and begin our $2.9 billion P.I.P.E.S. project,” said Mayor Jane Castor. “With great growth comes a great responsibility to ensure we diversify the way we do business and uplift all of the great subcontractors here in the City of Tampa as well as the region. Through this outreach event and a host of others, we are aggressively encouraging our prime contractors to provide opportunities to our smaller subcontractors.”
