HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Southern District Public Service Commissioner Sam Britton said Tuesday no date has been set yet for a hearing between all three members of the Public Service Commission and the Arnold Line Water Association.

The utility is appealing a March ruling from the PSC requiring it to change some of its rules and regulations regarding customer service. 

The water association said the commission lacks jurisdiction to mandate those changes.

The PSC has maintained it cannot regulate water rates, but it can oversee quality of service issues.

"It will come before the full commission, we will then render our decision and then it will be up to Arnold Line, they will either comply with what we've said, or I think they can appeal ours and go to a court of law, so we're still one step further along," said Britton.

He was in Oak Grove, speaking at a meeting of Forrest-Lamar Republican Women.
