George Johnson Has Been Subpoenaed by the Arizona Corporation Commission

The Arizona Corporation Commission Utilities Division has subpoenaed George Johnson to appear at the Administrative Hearing on March 29th regarding the investigation into the ongoing billing and water quality issues with Johnson Utilities.

In the subpoena Mr. Johnson is ordered to appear and testify under oath regarding his continued involvement with Johnson Utilities, and his ownership interest in the company.

This comes after several interesting and explosive events that have taken place over the last month and a half.

Starting with the two day event of six ACC hearings in San Tan Valley where hundred and hundred of residents came out to tell their story and frustration. This was followed by documentation submitted by the ACC staff on March 8, 2018 that detailed violations and concerns that “the Company may lack the necessary managerial and technical capabilities to appropriately run the utility.“

Additionally, the March 13, 2018 Open Meeting (Agenda 18, Docket number WS-02987A-16-0275) quickly became incredibly interesting with the mention that there is a possible connection between Johnson Utilities and Road Runner Transit.

That Open Meeting climaxed with Johnson Utilities filing a restraining order against the ACC.

Now, the most recent events involve the ACC subpoenaing George Johnson.

What happens next is anyone’s guess at this point. But, all eyes will be on the March 29, 2018 Hearing.
