Rattenbury Denies Back-Door Fee To Power Bills


A 10-dollar-fee for tree trimming, added on to Canberra power bills, is being described as a "back door" increase to the cost of living.

It comes after the ACT Government handed responsibility of keeping trees off power lines to Actew AGL.

Canberra Liberal Mark Parton has accused Greens Leader Shane Rattenbury of sneaking the charge through the back door.

But Mr Rattenbury says he's been totally up-front about the 10 dollar fee.
