Florence "Evaluating" Purchase of Johnson Utilities, while AZ CorpCom Treats It Like a Done Deal

Florence is exploring the purchase of Johnson Utilities, one of the largest private water and sewer companies in Arizona, which services the San Tan Valley and parts of the town.

Some of the players involved are talking about the potential sale as a done deal. But there remain numerous unanswered questions about the proposed transaction, which has been the subject of rumors for weeks.

Earlier this month, Florence posted a notice to its official town website, announcing that it had "started the evaluation process for the purchase of the assets of Johnson Utilities," a move it first considered back in 2007.
