BRUSH VALLEY — The Brush Valley Township supervisors on Monday discussed residents’ interest in natural gas services and advised on how to proceed if services are desired.
Several township residents are interested in natural gas service, said Robin Brilhart, township secretary.
If the gas company receives enough interest within a certain area, it will provide a cost estimate for those households, Brilhart said.
