DPS Commissioner David O'Brien says his department’s report, due out Thursday, does not point to criminal wrongdoing.

Meanwhile, a lawyer for Burlington Telecom told the Public Service Board on Wednesday the city hopes to walk a fiber-optic tightrope in the coming months, keeping a finance company at bay and finding new equipment before its current system is repossessed.
