Rep. Culver talks natural gas during Riverside outreach

— RIVERSIDE – Rep. Lynda Schlegel Culver spoke with several local residents during a Tuesday outreach session, including Riverside council member John Domanski.

Domanski, who met with Culver at the outreach held at Riverside’s borough office, discussed with her the prospect of brining natural gas to the borough. Domanski, who was elected to borough council this past November, has made natural gas a priority of his four-year term.

Domanski asked Culver if she could facilitate a meeting with natural gas provider UGI and the borough to see if they would extend a line already in place at Riverside’s Merck Pharmaceutical plant.

Culver, a Republican who represents the 108th district of Northumberland and Snyder counties, said she wasn’t certain what UGI’s response would be, “but it’s definitely worth a conversation and bringing the two parties together.”

Culver said she was hoping to speak with UGI this week to start the process. “We’d need to see what the interest is, if it’s cost beneficial,” she said.

If those talks are a success, Domanski would like to see a question and answer session held for the people of Riverside to educate them on the costs and details of brining natural gas to the borough.

“Hopefully we can get things moving in Riverside,” he said.
