Orlando mayor dedicates June 26 as ‘OUC 100th Anniversary Day’
ORLANDO, Fla. – Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer honored OUC’s century of devoted service to the city of Orlando by declaring June 26 as “OUC 100th Anniversary Day.”
OUC’s roots trace back to a group of companies “that provided electricity to illuminate downtown streetlights and delivered water and ice to the community,” according to a news release. OUC was founded back in 1923 as a municipal utility commission with a “mission to provide reliable and affordable electric and water services” to the city of Orlando. Its first meeting was conducted on June 25, 1923, in the First National Bank in Orlando.
