Administrative Law Judge Deems McLendon Chisholm's Application Deficient


Dear RCH Members,

We want to update you on the recent developments regarding the City of McLendon Chisholm's application for a Certificate of Convenience and Necessity (CCN). The Administrative Law Judge at the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT) has issued Order No. 4, finding the application deficient under 16 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) § 24.259(e).

The judge highlighted several key deficiencies in the application, including the failure to identify the type of service in the requested area, the absence of details about the municipally-owned or franchised utility that would provide service and a lack of specificity regarding the property requested for transfer from the current CCN holder.

In addition to the deficiencies noted by the Commission Staff on October 30, 2023, McLendon-Chisholm has been instructed to supplement the application and address these issues by November 30, 2023. Commission Staff will then provide comments on the augmented application by January 5, 2023.

For more detailed information, you can review the full filing here.

We appreciate your ongoing support and will keep you informed as the situation progresses.
