Bank to be physically moved from Jenkins to Baxter


BAXTER – First National Bank in Jenkins is moving its building to Baxter to the former Integra site at the corner of Clearwater Road and Edgewood Drive.

The move is creating a rare opportunity for firefighters to train in a commercial building before it is burned to the ground.

Mayor Darrel Olson said Tuesday the city had a number of concerns when first learning of the training. Olson said the council appreciated the information clarifying the project.
