Homewood man suing over $5K water bill

A $5,000 water bill has a resident of south suburban Homewood filing a lawsuit.

Dr. Paul Otubusin says he and his daughter are incapable of using that amount of water.

He says the village told him to check for leaks around his property which he did, but they still billed him for more than $5,000.

His suit claims the village acted deceptively. He's asking for damages and attorneys' fees.

The village of Homewood could not be reached for comment Thursday night.
