BankORION expands in Cambridge


Cambridge Village Board members gave final approval at their regular Board meeting to a resolution supporting BankORION’s expansion plans, which include the demolition of a banking facility at 112 South West St. and the construction of a new full-service banking facility there.

Village Administrator Steve Brown said, “We are delighted to see the bank growing and appreciate BankORION’s commitment to our community.

In other business, the board approved a $400 donation to Tree Forever, a Marion, Iowa-based nonprofit agency that promotes tree planting with educational programs and community plantings.

Brown said that last fall Trees Forever representatives traveled to Cambridge and helped village employees, along with members of the Cambridge High School FFA, identify and assess all trees owned by the village.

“We will have an inventory that will identify and assess every tree in the city so that we can monitor our trees that are valuable assets to the community,” Brown said. “It also allows us to qualify and receive the designation of ‘Tree City USA’.”

The village also received a $2,000 grant from Trees Forever to plant trees in the village’s four parks.

In other cases counsel:

-Approved a $500 grant application from Megan Anderson to renovate the rental space of a spa business in downtown Cambridge.

-Approved a $400 donation to Abilities Plus.

-Approval of a 12-month extension with Mel Foster Co. to continue marketing village-owned properties.

-Approved allowing American Legal Publishing to prepare Supplement S-3 for Code Village updates.
