Toho Water Authority, the largest provider of water, wastewater and reclaimed water services in Osceola County, has dedicated its administration building to honor its founding executive director, Brian L. Wheeler.

Now officially known as the Brian L. Wheeler Water Resources Center, the four-story building at 951 Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Kissimmee stands as a testament to his hard work and perseverance.

“It is both humbling and an honor to have the building commemorated with my name,” said Wheeler, who retired in 2018.

Wheeler led Toho for 15 years, including overseeing its formation in 2003 by a special act of the Florida Legislature after serving as the City of Kissimmee director of water resources since 1985.

“Having the privilege to serve as director of this organization has been tremendously fulfilling, and seeing it continue to grow and prosper is also incredibly rewarding,” he added,

Signage in front of the building and at the lobby entrance were unveiled to showcase the new name during a recent ceremony.

Formed in 2003 by a special act by the Florida Legislature, it currently serves over 115,000 customers in Kissimmee, Poinciana, and unincorporated areas of Osceola and Polk counties.
