Gas info available for Guilford residents

GUILFORD LAKE - The Guilford Lake Civic Association is working with Columbia Gas of Ohio to try and get natural gas service extended to those areas of Guilford Lake not serviced by natural gas.

Their first step in this process is to obtain name and addresses of those residents that would potentially be interested in the service.

Columbia Gas would then determine the feasibility of extending natural gas facilities to the various neighborhoods.

Residents of the Guilford Lake Area who would be interested in the service are asked to call either Joyce Lasky at 330-222-1759 or Bob Gause at 330-222-1975 to have their name added to the list or for more information.

Those interested should note that indicating an interest will not commit them to converting to natural gas.
