according to information posted on the website, Barton and LoGuidice, a regional engineering firm that provides services to Seneca County and the region.

What surprised me was that they received between $5 and $10 million from the paycheck protection program:

Business name BARTON & LOGUIDICE, D.P.C.
Address 443 Electronics Parkway
Loan amount $5-10 million
Lender Manufacturers and Traders Trust Company
Jobs retained 287
Non-profit? No

Paycheck Protection Program

An SBA loan that helps businesses keep their workforce employed during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

Why surprised?

Many engineering projects are supported by state and Federal grants to the government entity doing the project. Engineering firms have to be very good at preparing the grant applications.

Is it any surprise that they would use that expertise to get aid for themselves?
