RE: Sandy Township
Clearfield County

Dear Jim,

The purpose of this letter is to express our deepest appreciation and gratitude for North Central’s willingness and ability to help us obtain funding for critical projects to improve the economic conditions within Sandy Township and the surrounding communities. We very much appreciate everything that Bob Rusiewski and the rest of your team have done for our community!

Several years ago, North Central assisted Sandy Township obtain grant funding for an Industrial Drive extension project. Due to numerous issues with the project, the updated cost estimate of the project had far exceeded what the original cost projections were when the grant was received. Based upon the cost overrun, the project was infeasible for Sandy Township to complete without some additional grant monies.

Then recently, Bob Rusiewski and the North Central team realy went above and beyond to assist Sandy Township obtain additional grant monies for the Industrial Drive extension project. They worked tirelessly with state and Federal agencies to express the importance of our project to get this funding. North Central was excellent to work with and provided us much needed direction to get the funding in place.

Thanks again for all of the assistance North Central has provided us.
