On behalf of the Board of Commissioners, I would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation for your work on the Sagadahoc County Courthouse Restoration Project. The professionalism, patience, dedication to quality, skill and knowledge displayed by you and your workmen were outstanding; in fact, I can honestly state that Knowles Corporation is by far the best contractor with whom I have ever worked!

The scope of this project was much greater than originally anticipated and your willingness to assist with problem solving and finding financial options enabled us to overcome that hurdle. And your unfailing courtesy to our employees and citizens; your insistence on maintaining the integrity of your work; and your prompt communications are but a few of the reasons for the success of this undertaking.

We are extremely pleased with the appearance of the Courthouse, and we thank you once again for making this a successful project for the citizens of Sagadahoc County.
