My trees are going to be cut because of the phone lines.

Can my husband trim them and send the City a bill?

  • N. If the city wants them cut, the city cuts them. That's what franchise fees are collected for on your phone & cable bills. It's the city's "right-of-way" to get to the poles and wires.

  • No, the Town Employees get paid to do that. That's why you pay taxes (if you do that is).

  • Go ahead.

    Just don't expect to have the city pay the bill.

  • Most cities are broke or at least strapped for cash. Highly doubtful that you will get reimbursed if you do it yourself.

  • You can TRY, but I wouldn't expect them to pay.

  • I thought the city did free of charge...?

    Answer by feralxat at 4:55 PM on Aug. 29, 2013

  • Nope. The city is under contract to pay certain employees or certain companies to do the work. Paying a private citizen would be a violation.
