First Installment of “Municipal Leadership Grant” Presented To West Brunswick Township Supervisors

SCIDA is the economic development arm of county government having been created by the County Commissioners in 1971 to help fund expanding businesses and industries throughout Schuylkill County.
Several members of the Board of Directors of the Schuylkill County Industrial Development Authority (SCIDA) presented the West Brunswick Township Supervisors with a check in the amount of $6,000 representing the first installment of a three year “Municipal Leadership Grant” in conjunction with the Route 61 reconstruction project at the March supervisor’s meeting.  The overall grant will total $18,000 in support of three traffic lights the township has agreed to accept responsibility for as part of the Penn DOT safety project along State Route 61, including the intersection with State Route 895 in Deer Lake Borough.


 “The West Brunswick Township Supervisors have recognized the critical importance of the three traffic signals both from a safety standpoint, as well as an economic development standpoint,”  according to Brian Canfield, Chairman of SCIDA.  He added, “The Municipal Leadership Grant will help offset some of the initial operating expenses for the lights as an incentive for the township to act as the applicant for the lights, all three of which will serve businesses and industries in the Auburn, Deer Lake and West Brunswick Township section of Schuylkill County.”


SCIDA is the economic development arm of county government having been created by the County Commissioners in 1971 to help fund expanding businesses and industries throughout Schuylkill County.  To date, over 120 projects have been completed thru SCIDA, representing an investment of over $800 million in buildings, machinery and equipment along with the creation and retention of over 5000 jobs. The Authority is governed by a 15 person Board of Directors appointed by the Schuylkill County Commissioners and is administered by the staff of the Schuylkill Economic Development Corporation (SEDCO).
