I closed the checking account I had held for many years. It didn't hold my money, but the money that 4 neighbors and I contributed each month to maintain our well. For a few months we had no financial institution holding our funds, but last week I opened a new checking account for our well funds. It's only used to hold the money and pay the power and write checks for occasional testing or repairs. There isn't a lot of activity on it, and it holds a few thousand dollars. The last repair we had was about 5,000.00 so it is necessary that we have money saved up for this type of thing. Anyway, I wanted to keep the well funds separate from any place where I personally bank (2 banks that are large, nationwide well-known banks.) I chose this small, hometown bank since it offered no-fee checking. I despise dealing with monthly fees or hoops you have to jump through to avoid them. The bank was extremely welcoming and friendly and also attractive inside. I think we'll stay with this bank for many years.
