Winamac Town Council Approves Appropriation Resolution and Bank Transfer

Winamac Town Council members met Monday morning to take care of some year-end business.

Members unanimously approved a resolution which allows Clerk-Treasurer Melanie Berger to make some transfers to eliminate any negative account balances and even out the budget. Berger noted that all municipalities do this on an annual basis.

In addition to that, members permitted Clerk-Treasurer Berger to move an account from one bank to another. Berger explained that the Town had a savings account with Key Bank and they’re closing their Winamac branch.

As a result, she was given permission to close out the account there and move the existing fund to First Source. She noted that the account contained less than $5,000 and is specifically for the Winamac Economic Development Commission.
