Use rainy day fund to vent gas line at Lebanon High School

To the Editor:

All things considered in regard to the gas leak repair at Lebanon High School, we need to vent the gas to the atmosphere to prevent another event similar to the Billy Goat Hill disaster back in the late 1950s.

Since the county and the city are short of funds, we should be able to pull funds to complete this needed modification from the new $700,000 rainy day fund, ASAP (as soon as possible).
