SAN TAN VALLEY — Some customers of Johnson Utilities will need to wait a little longer to find out whether their properties can be serviced by the town of Queen Creek.

On Tuesday, the Arizona Corporation Commission voted to send a request by nine property owners to be serviced by Queen Creek for both water and wastewater services to a hearing officer for consideration. The property owners cited inefficiencies at Johnson Utilities and an unknown future for that utility.

Since August, Johnson Utilities has been managed by EPCOR Water, a temporary manager appointed by the ACC. On Tuesday, commissioners heard that Queen Creek and EPCOR officials have agreed to an interconnection agreement for water services.
