Atlanta Gas Light Spending

Atlanta Gas Light Co. spent thousands of dollars on parties and other entertainment expenses that ended up on gas customers bills, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Sunday.

The spending was reflected on customers bills between 2000 and 2003 - a time when home heating costs were soaring. It included bills for a canal cruise and cookout in Augusta, a quail hunt in Carrollton and other parties and gifts.

Customers were charged a fee that was supposed to pay for cleaning up toxic coal tar. Currently, it's about one-dollar-thirty-cents a month.

AGL used money from the fee for a $2.3 million public relations campaign. The Georgia Public Service Commission is reviewing the utility's coal tar spending.
