The First National Bank, facing a shortage of office space, is moving some of its staff into the new building next to its current location.
Damon Migues, president of First National Bank, said that the employees are looking forward to the move.
The employees are looking forward to the new meeting area for training, Migues said.
With online banking opportunities available for customers, the bank plans to host seminars for its customers to better understand these new services, Migues said. The meeting room has been designed with audio and visual equipment to be able to host the seminars and can seat from 75-80 people.
The other areas of the building will be used for office areas for many of the non-customer contact personnel and will include a new computer room that is fireproof, secure and upgraded, Migues said.
The bookkeeping department of the bank will be housed in the front portion of the building and customers can access this area from the Main Street entrance.
"We designed the building to be asthecially pleasing to Main Street," Migues said. The building itself sits on an angle but is actually squarred to the property line, Migues added.
The building being on an angle allows for a better view for customers exiting the drive through and gives customers more room when entering the building. The entire building is handicap accessible, he added.
The lots the building sits on became available through landowners piece by piece. The lot next to the current Main Office location was rented out for two years before construction began.
Construction on the new office building began last June and has taken a little over a year to complete but was well worth the effort, Migues said.
