Chapter 024 : Powers and Duties of Board and Agency as to Companies Other than Railroads and Aircraft(Cite as: 5 V.S.A. § 1824)
§ 1824. Application for certificate of public good; hearing
A certificate shall be issued only after written application has been made. Upon receipt of an application, the Board shall fix a time and place for hearing, which shall be in a town within which the route or a part of the route is proposed, and shall give notice of the pendency of the application and of the time and place of hearing to the applicant, and to any common carrier operating over any portion of the proposed route or over a route substantially parallel to the proposed route. The Board shall make an order for the publication of the substance of the petition and of the time and place of the hearing in a newspaper published in the county or counties where the proposed route is located, the publication to be at least 12 days before the day appointed for the hearing. A public hearing shall be held on the petition. To enable the provision of service for which there is an immediate or urgent need to a point or points within a territory having no carrier service capable of meeting those needs, the Board may, without hearings or other proceedings, grant temporary authority for the service by a common carrier. Temporary authority, unless suspended or revoked for good cause, shall be valid for the time as the Board shall specify but not more than an aggregate of 180 days and shall create no presumption that corresponding permit authority shall be granted.
