Johnson Utilities Meter Management Program Lifted in Regions 1 and 2

Commissioners at the Arizona Corporation Commission, voted 4-1 to lift the Meter Management Program in Johnson Utilities' Regions 1 and 2, which were the last two regions with a meter management program. The Commission found that the utility has obtained sufficient water supply to lift the meter management restrictions in water regions 1 and 2 required under Commission Decisions 76937, 77209 and 77268.

All documents related to this agenda item can be found in the Corporation Commission's online docket at and entering docket number WS-02987A-18-0050.

Johnson Utilities Revised Hook-up Fee Tariffs

On September 17, 2019 the Company through its interim manager EPCOR filed an application to revise the Company's hook-up fee ("HUF") tariff for both its water and wastewater systems.

Raising the HUF will provide additional funding from developers to pay for the required infrastructure investments needed to serve Johnson's growing customer base, especially in areas expected to be favorably impacted by the lifting of the Meter Management Program.

The Commission found that the higher HUF request should be approved. All documents related to this agenda item can be found in the Corporation Commission's online docket at and entering docket number WS-02987A-19-0217.

Johnson Utilities Granted Extension in Rate Application

Commissioners granted Johnson Utilities a time extension allowing the company to file its new rate application by February 14, 2020, instead of by December 31, 2019, as previously authorized. The new rate case filing will continue to be based on a test year ending August 31, 2019.

The company's Interim Manager, EPCOR, informed the Arizona Corporation Commission that it needs the six-week extension of time in order to prepare a complete rate application with all the required supporting schedules and pre-filed testimony.

EPCOR stated that because of the non-calendar-year test year, it was necessary to create test year-end closing entries, an accounting prerequisite not routinely complete within mid-year monthly closing of the books.

EPCOR stated that it had these test year end closing entries developed by a third-party Certified Public Accounting Firm and the process took significantly longer than originally anticipated, in part due to the need to prepare tax entries unique to Johnson.

EPCOR stated that it recently received the completed results and is now able to move forward with preparing the full rate case application. All documents relating to this agenda item can be found in the Corporation Commission's online docket at https://edock and entering docket number WS-02987A-17-0392.
