(HAMMOND) - Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott Junior is vowing that he will continue to oppose NIPSCO's request for a rate hike that he says would cost the average residential customer a 14-percent increase in their electric bills.

Documents filed by NIPSCO last week show that an average residential customer's current monthly bill would rise to $85.45 a month. McDermott called that unacceptable.

He says the country is in a deep recession and that city officials are prepared to offer testimony at this week's Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission hearings why the request is unreasonable and should be denied.
