The Augusta County Board of Supervisors is calling for another meeting with federal regulators about Dominion Resource's proposed natural gas pipeline project.

More than a hundred people signed up to speak with representatives from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) last week at a meeting held inside Stuarts Draft High School.

However, not all of those who signed up were given a chance to speak at that meeting. As a result, the board wants regulators to hold a second meeting to accommodate more speakers.

They also voted on Wednesday to apply for a 30-day extension to the public comment period ahead of regulators' environmental impact study of the project. That could put the deadline for public input at the end of May.
