On March 3, 2021 the Arizona Supreme Court granted the Petition for Review filed by Sun City Home Owners Association (SCHOA) agreeing to address both issues raised in the Petition regarding the forced consolidation of several EPCOR wastewater districts.
SCHOA, with the support of the Property Owners and Resident Association (PORA) of Sun City West, the City of Youngtown, and others, has led the fight against forced consolidation and discriminatory pricing for most of the last decade. The decision of the Supreme Court to hear our Petition is “heartening” according to Jim Hunter, President of the SCHOA Board of Directors,
“The Arizona Corporation Commission has repeatedly ignored the pleas of the ratepayers in our district. The consolidation of the five (5) wastewater districts resulted in our ratepayers subsidizing the other districts while ignoring cost causation” Hunter stated.
While the court’s decision to hear the Petition does not guarantee it will reverse the Corporation Commission’s forced consolidation decision, it is according to Hunter, “validation that our position is strong and worthy of review, and evidence that our fight on behalf of our ratepayers goes on. We are grateful that the Court is allowing us this opportunity to be heard.”
The Court has set a March 23, 2021 deadline for filing supplemental briefs and a May 18, 2021 date for oral arguments. SCHOA wishes to thank PORA, the City of Youngtown, and others for their continuing financial and other support. SCHOA is especially thankful to its members, without whom these efforts would not be possible.

Please use QCO code 22263 on AZ form 321.
From SCHOA’s Government Affairs Committee:
- SCHOA continues to advocate on behalf of every home and condo owner in our community in matters of government affairs and utility rates.
- There is a rate case moving forward today at the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) regarding EPCOR water rates. There are several scenarios presented in this rate case, including the full consolidation of 11 Water Districts including the Sun City District. SCHOA has historically opposed and continues to oppose forced consolidation.
- Full consolidation would likely result in approximately a 70% increase in water rates in Sun City.
- SCHOA (and others) have intervened in this rate case, and have entered testimony in opposition of any consolidation which includes Sun City District.
- SCHOA encourages every rate payer in our community to contact the ACC and voice opposition to any forced consolidation of our District. Consolidation would result in Sun City effectively subsidizing the other districts despite the costs in our District not justifying such an increase.
