Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn gave his annual State of the City address Tuesday morning.
He used the example of a squirrel causing a power failure at a water treatment plant last month resulting in a city-wide boil water notice to emphasize the importance of investing in infrastructure.
Buckhorn said Tampa Bay should be a region with a first class transportation system with mobility options.
â€œThat means bus rapid transit, that means HOV and it darn sure means rail.â€
Buckhorn also said he is proud of the Tampa community for how it hosted the Republican National Convention last summer.
