McKeesport, December 5, 2014 – Sen. Jim Brewster (D-Allegheny/Westmoreland) today announced a $ 95,000 state grant for the City of Arnold to implement a five year financial management plan and operation strategy.

“These funds will help officials from Arnold establish a sound financial strategy moving forward,” Brewster said. “I am hopeful this will lead to a number of helpful efficiencies, improved management practices and long range cost savings.”

As former mayor of nearby McKeesport, Brewster said capitalizing on proven planning strategies, workable contingency planning and capitalizing on a host of other best practice financial and management tools can have an extensive impact on a community’s viability.

Brewster said he will continue to work with city leaders to obtain state funds to support efforts aimed at improving Arnold’s infrastructure and economic standing.

The grant is being administered by the Department of Community and Economic Development’s Early Intervention Program.
