BIZ BUZZ: Salin Bank donates Burlington building

Pulaski County videos now online.

BURLINGTON — Salin Bank donated its Burlington bank building to the Community Howard Regional Health Foundation Inc. last week.

The building, valued at more than $140,000, according to a release from Salin, was used as a banking center before the lobby closed last year. It’s about 3,752 square feet and is located at 401 N. Michigan Road.

It’s the second building in the area that Salin Bank has donated within the last year. The bank gave its Walton location to Southeastern School Corp. in September 2013 under similar conditions — that the Salin Bank sign remain out front and an ATM remain installed at the location.

The bank has donated other local buildings or lots in the past. The City of Logansport Economic Development Organization’s current location was donated to the organization in 2006, and the bank donated the space for the existing downtown farmers market lot in 2011.

When the bank announced last March that it planned to close its downtown Logansport branch lobby, a bank spokesperson indicated then that the bank may be donating that building, too, to an entity which would share it with Salin’s drive-up and walk-up windows and an ATM.

The CEO of Community Howard Regional Health, James P. Alender, indicated in a release that the health network intends to open a physician’s office in the Burlington building. Renovations are expected to begin later this year.

Salin Bank and Trust Co. now operates 21 banking center locations, including ones in Delphi, Flora, Galveston and Logansport, and has more than $750 million in assets.


WINAMAC — Videos filmed last fall in businesses around Pulaski County have been released by the company and have started airing on Indiana public TV stations this month.

Pulaski County’s economic development organization last year allocated $10,000 toward producing “Peaceful Pulaski,” a half-hour segment of the public TV program Savor Indiana. A film crew spent three days in October visiting businesses in Pulaski County that may appeal to out-of-towners looking for an adventure.
