Bristol will not get natural gas service anytime soon — if ever.

As a dozen members of the public looked on, the Bristol selectboard voted 2–1 Monday night to rescind a July 23, 2018, license agreement with Vermont Gas Systems (VGS), which would have brought natural gas service to some parts of the town.
