Summit County is considering an emergency preparation fund to deal with potential problems from the Nexus gas pipeline.

County Executive Ilene Shapiro and two county council members introduced legislation to create the fund, which would draw from the pipeline’s property taxes. The money will be used to plan and train for possible pipeline emergencies like explosions or leaks.
