A Homewood man is suing the village over a $5,300 water bill he received from the village.
Paul Otubusin says he got a warning in June about how much water was being used at his home.
He checked for leaks and wrote the village saying everything looked fine.
He added there’s no way he could have used $5,000 worth of water when his bill is normally less than $200.
The village didn’t back down.
He is now suing the village for damages and attorney’s fees.
