FLORENCE — Pinal County is filing to take part, or “intervene,” in the Arizona Corporation Commission’s deliberations on whether to approve the sale of Johnson Utilities to EPCOR USA.

Deputy County Attorney Kevin Costello told the Board of Supervisors Wednesday there’s a tight time frame for the county to get involved. The final hearing before the ACC is set for Nov. 18. To learn the purchase price, the county will need to approve a non-disclosure agreement, he said.Johnson Utilities customer John Dantico strongly urged the board to intervene, as the county is the closest government entity for more than 100,000 people whose quality of life will be affected for decades to come, he said.

“Everyone is in favor of EPCOR acquiring Johnson Utilities but there are important issues that need to be reviewed in the hearing like how EPCOR intends to provide service to areas that are still subject to a moratorium and how much this acquisition will impact ratepayers with future rate increases.”
