MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Public Service Board is holding a closed hearing next month on Vermont Gas Systems’ pipeline project.

Vermont Public Radio (https://bit.ly/2adghjO ) reports that the board announced this week that the August hearing won’t take place in front of the public. It is for legal arguments on whether regulators should allow the company to build its pipeline through a public park in Hinesburg.

CEO Don Rendall says the pipeline might not finish this year if Vermont Gas can’t get rights to build in Geprags Park.

The board, which regulates Vermont Gas and other utilities, has raised concerns about disruptive behavior at other proceedings related to the pipeline.

The pipeline is currently under construction and will extend 41 miles between Colchester and Addison County.
