Letters to the Editor

Letter: Schools to shelters?

Should these soon-to-beclosed schools be adapted to shelter and service people now sheltering back in Sullivan Arena? These schools already have features such as bus accessibility, administrative and resident support space, controlled access, plus facilities to feed people.

Or should we expend more millions to have contractors build, then later maintain, yet another tax-exempt new building (or buildings)? Perhaps we should purchase yet another failed hotel or other business to relieve the previous owners of a liability, while also removing that property from the tax rolls?
