South Sioux City, Nebraska is repaying the South Sioux City Community School District because the district had been billed double over the past 10 years, 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. A new meter was added during those 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 the Nebraska Public Power District.
