In January residents in Augusta and Gardiner were among the first in Maine to get natural gas as a home heating source. In Madison, distribution lines have been laid in some parts of town, but the company is hoping that Thursday’s meeting can provide them with a better sense of places where natural gas is wanted.

“We have significant plans to build distribution lines in Madison on many different streets. What we’d like to do is explain the timing to people,” said Duguay.

Homes that are on gas lines could get natural gas as soon as April, said Duguay.

Madison Town Manager Dana Berry will be at the meeting, and he said residents interested in getting natural gas should attend.

“It should be an interesting meeting,” Berry said. “The general public should be aware of what natural gas is and this is a chance to have questions answered as well as for Summit to get an idea of how much pipe needs to be laid to deliver gas to homes.”

A second meeting will be held Tuesday at the junior high school for those that cannot attend Thursday’s meeting.
