Service to Starland and the Morrin Area by the Alberta Treasury Branch (ATB) will continue in the community in a new space.
The Mail reported in November of last year that ATB was searching for a new banking provider in Morrin. For years ATB operated out of the Starland County office, however ATB informed Starland it would not be renewing its contract and posted on its social media it could be looking for a new contractor.
Sharpes Trucking, which operates on Main Street in Morrin has secured a contract with ATB. Jessica Shapre says they are transitioning the operations from Starland County.
“I, along with a few other employees, will be operating out of our building where we offer our bookkeeping services, Sharpe’s Trucking, and Pioneer Seeds,” she explains. “It is the old Western Financial building.”
“It is good opportunity that has come our way and it has been really good, the community is fantastic and supportive,” she said.
Sharpe explains the community is vibrant with a brand new school, thriving businesses, an arena that is busy with hockey and skating programs as well as the 4H. They are also in the heart of a vibrant farming community.
“I think it is a benefit and added service that I think we need,” she said.
Sharpe has a background in banking and is looking forward to the new opportunity. She worked at the credit union for nine years.
The new branch will be opening on March 5, offering continuity of service in the community.
