PILOT ROCK — The city of Pilot Rock is looking to switch banks to get lower fees and better customer service.
The small town near Pendleton uses Umpqua Bank. City recorder Teri Bacus in a memo to the city council reported the bank’s “services have been declining,” including sending a funds for the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality to the wrong account and not providing the city an account analysis each month automatically.
And if the city switches to Banner Bank, according to the memo, the city would save upwards of $303 a year in direct deposit fees.
The city council meets Tuesday starting at 7 p.m. at the council chambers. Other business on the agenda includes approving the results of the Nov. 6 general election and considering a winter vacation request from Police Chief Bill Caldera.
