ST. MARYS â€“ Two area organizations that have provided support to Elk County communities over the years held a ribbon-cutting Thursday afternoon to celebrate their new shared space in the Franklin Center in downtown St. Marys.
The Elk County Community Foundation (ECCF) and St. Marys Area Economic Development Corp. (EDC) will now make their headquarters inside the center.
ECCF is a nonprofit organization which manages endowed funds established by donors and then awards that funding locally to individuals, nonprofit organizations and others.
Following the replacement of Elk County's former earned income tax (EIT) collector CENTAX, by officials citing the company's failure to process tax returns and distribute funds in a timely manner, reports that the company is soon to shut down operations for good have begun to surface.
