A consulting agreement has been entered between EPCOR Water Arizona (EPCOR) and the Utilities Division (Staff) per the Arizona Corporation Commission's Decision No. 76785.

The Commission ordered Staff to immediately commence efforts to obtain an agreement with an Interim Manager who would assume operation of Johnson Utilities, L.L.C. ("Johnson") as soon as possible on an interim basis.

After completing the process of soliciting interest from potential candidates and reviewing their documentation, Staff recommended EPCOR Water Arizona to the Commissioners. At the July 26, 18 2018 Open Meeting, the Commissioners expressed their preference as to which candidate would be the appropriate candidate and directed Staff to proceed as directed in Decision No. 76785.

Pursuant to that direction Staff has entered into a Consulting Agreement, as a first step, so that EPCOR can commence its evaluation of Johnson's facilities while Staff and EPCOR continue to finalize the details of the Interim Manager Agreement, which according to the docket, will be forthcoming soon.

The Consulting Agreement, which can be found here, was filed on Docket No. WS-02987A-18-0050.

The agreement is effective August 1st.
