HUNTLEY, Ill -- How closely are you paying attention to the numbers on your utility bill?  This next story may get you to check twice.

A Huntley man has been overpaying his power bill for more than a decade and it may not be that easy to get that money back.

Call it a meter mix-up, but how many of you have actually cross checked the number on your meter with the number on your bill?    The man you’re about to meet  knew something wasn’t right with his bill. He called and called but never got a real answer.

Until recently.
