ST. MARYS - The City of St. Marys and Elk County have teamed up with the Christian Food Bank to provide grant funds to the organization for the construction of a drive-thru at their facility.
The project entails the removal of a 20 ft.x 20 ft. section of the current building, which is currently being used for storage, and the addition of a 60 ft. x 24ft. steel structure with garage doors at each end along with three non-operable windows, floor drains, lighting, concrete footers and concrete aprons on each end and man doors.
The estimated cost for the project was $150,000. The city’s share is 77% or $115,000 while the county’s share is 23% or $34,500. This amount was determined as 77% percent of the food bank’s clients are from St. Marys while the remaining 23% are from outside the city.
