The Arizona Corporation Commission has declined to install new management for Far West Water and Sewer. The Yuma Sun is reporting that the ACC was asked by one of their commissioners to appoint interim management.
All of this comes after Far West has asked for a nearly 200-percent increase in standard flat rate fees. The utility has maintained they need the increase or else they will be forced into bankruptcy.
Since that time, a proposal to increase the flat rate fee to $57.77 has been proposed – less than the original proposal of $62.65.
