SOUTH SIOUX CITY (AP) - South Sioux City is repaying the South Sioux City Community School District because the district had been billed double over the past 10 years.
The district was overcharged nearly $416,000. School board member Tom Gesell says the district expected savings from an addition to the high school built in 2002, but those savings were never realized. The second meter was added during the 2002 renovations, but the old meter was never disconnected. Crews working on the air conditioning system last summer found the second meter. The City Council has approved repaying the district because the city is the administrator for Nebraska Public Power District.
