Hearing date set for Prudence Island ferry challenger
A public hearing has been scheduled by the Division of Public Utilities and Carriers to go over A&R Marine's application for a certificate of public convenience and necessity (CPCN).
The hearing will be held at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 29 in Hearing Room A of the PUC building, 89 Jefferson Blvd., in Warwick.
On Sept. 19, A&R Marine filed an application for a CPCN, permitting the company to run a ferry from Prudence Island to Bristol. Currently, that service is done by Prudence Island Ferry Inc., owned by Bruce Medley. Mr. Medley has provided that ferry service exclusively since the mid-80s.
The public is invited to attend.
