Trumbull County over-billed for electricity



Published: Wed, July 25, 2007 @ 3:37 p.m.

WARREN — For the second time in a year, Trumbull County officials have learned that a computer glitch caused Ohio Edison to overbill the county for electical use — this time to the tune of $260,000 over four years.

Rebilling statements Ohio Edison gave to county commisioners Tuesday said the county had paid roughly five times as much for electricity in the county-owned Stone Building at the corner of High Street and Park Avenue as it should have — $316,526 instead of $60,507.

Trumbull County Commissioner Frank Fuda said he gives credit to Ohio Edison for finding the mistake and correcting it. Fuda said, however, that the county’s accounts payable secretary, Vickie Housel, actually questioned the bills in May and that prompted the company to review the bills.

Housel said an Ohio Edison official came to the county administration building in person Tuesday to give the county checks for $130,931 and $129,084. The two refunds are for two of the three meters that count electrical usage in the Stone Building.
