South Milwaukee - The city water utility is telling residents that its request for a 52% increase in revenues could lead to an increase of 41% to 52% in their bills.

When news of the utility's request, which is being made to the state Public Service Commission, surfaced last week, Water Superintendent Doug Fischer said he did not know how much a resident's bill likely could increase.

A notice on the city's Web site says residents could expect an increase of $8 to $10 per month.

That would amount to an increase of $96 to $120 per year - or 41% to 52% more than the annual water bill for the average homeowner, which Fischer said is $232.
