Yingling Works to Save Residents Money by Hosting a Utility Bill Clinic

08/08/2019
ROUND LAKE BEACH, Ill. – State Rep. Sam Yingling, D-Grayslake, is partnering with the Citizens Utility Board (CUB) for a Utility Bill Clinic on Monday, Aug. 19 from 6 pm to 8 pm. It will be at the Round Lake Area Library, located at 906 Hart Rd in Round Lake. Residents should bring their gas, electric, and phone bills for a free, one-on-one consultation with an expert who will identify hidden fees and unnecessary charges to save residents their hard-earned money.

“With property taxes out of control, middle-class families are already struggling,” said Yingling. “The last thing that these families need is their utility bills being bloated with unnecessary fees.”

Yingling has fought to save residents money on their utility bills during his time in the General Assembly. He has introduced legislation that would prohibit unregulated utility companies from using logos of regulated utility companies to mislead residents into purchasing unnecessary services. Hosting Utility Bill Clinics is just one of the many ways Yingling works to keep the price of utility bills manageable for middle-class families.

“Saving money for middle-class families is my top priority,” said Yingling. “The Utility Bill Clinic is just one way to help families keep their expenses down. I hope everyone will stop by with their bills and find out how they can avoid unnecessary spending."
