A. Computation of Time - Except as otherwise
provided by law, in computing any period of time prescribed or allowed by any
rule, regulation, or order of the Board, or by any applicable statute, the day
of the act, event, or default from or after which the designated period of time
begins to run shall not be included, but the last day of the period so computed
shall be included, unless it is a Saturday, Sunday, or a legal holiday in Rhode
Island, in which event the period shall run until the end of the next day which
is not a Saturday, Sunday, or a holiday.
B. Extension of Time - Except as otherwise
provided, whenever by any rule, regulation, or order of the Board, or any
notice given thereunder, an act is required or allowed to be done at or within
a specified time, the time fixed or the period of time prescribed may, for good
cause, be extended upon motion made before expiration of the period originally
prescribed or as previously extended, and upon motion made after the expiration
of the specified period, the act may be permitted to be done, where reasonable
grounds are shown for the failure to act.
C. Continuances - Except as otherwise
provided by the Act, the Board may, for good cause at any time, with or without
motion, continue or adjourn any hearing. A hearing before the Board shall begin
at the time and place fixed in an order or a notice, but thereafter may be
adjourned from time to time or from place to place by the Board.
D. Requests for Time Extensions - Except as
otherwise provided by law, requests for extensions of time in which to perform
any act required or allowed to be done at or within as specified time by any
rule, regulation, or order of the Board, shall be by motion in writing, timely
filed with the Board, stating the facts on which the application rests, except
that during the course of a hearing in a proceeding, such requests may be made
by oral motion. Written motions filed under this section shall conform to the
requirements of §
1.17 of this Part.
