RIDGE FARM, Ill (WCIA)– Some people in Vermilion County were shocked when they got their water bills this month.
One of them was as high as $5,000.It happened in Ridge Farm.
The water department had a computer error, and they were training a new employee.
That caused bills to be sent out with the wrong amounts.
We talked to a woman got a bill for more than $400.
“So we had a billing discrepancy about 7, 8 months ago so I thought that was a discrepancy. I had no idea other people were having the same problem I was. so i was very frustrated,” Jessica Stamm, Ridge Farm.
She knows at least six people got wrong bills.
The mayor says they will fix all of them.
You can call the village office if you got one.
