CMR Billing Statement

We recently had a disruption in our service and had a technician out to investigate.  We were told the problem was with the line coming into our home and they would need to put in a temporary line until they could come out again to install the permanent line and bury the cable.  This weekend I received a bill on Verizon letterhead for 'Verizon Cost to Repair' in the amount of $729.35.  Whoa! What's going on here?  I have been a long time subscriber to Fios but I would never have agreed to a repair for that amount.  I've been transferred to several different people and nobody can seem to help me get this resolved.  I poked around a bit online and it appears this is a recurring issue but I can't get anyone on the phone that has any idea what’s going on.  Is there someone here who can help me?
