The Arizona Corporation Commission held its monthly Open Meeting August 14, 208, followed by a Staff Meeting to discuss and vote on various water, electric, railroad, and tax reform agenda items. Two of those items included Johnson Utilities Interim Manager update Johnson Utilities water outage violations. 
During the Open Meeting held Tuesday, August 14, 2018, at the Arizona Corporation Commission, the Commissioners asked for a procedural hearing allowing an Administrative Law Judge to decide if Johnson Utilities and its managers could be held in contempt of court.  The request was made after Epcor, who had been appointed as an Interim Manager on July 26, 2018, reported that they still had not been granted access to Johnson Utilities' financial systems or accounts.
In a letter written to his Corporation Commission colleagues August 21, 2018, Commissioner Andy Tobin called for an emergency meeting to authorize issuing a search and seizure warrant on Johnson Utilities, LLC.

Today in Judge Stephen F. McCarville's court, the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) was asking for a permanent injuction against Johnson Utilities, requiring the utility company to provide access to everything necessary for Epcor to act as Interim Manager.
