Gilmer County Courthouse Now Has Public ATM
Citizens visiting the Gilmer County Courthouse now have access to a public ATM (Automated Teller Machine).
Users can withdraw as little as $20 and as much as $200, provided they have sufficient available funds, using any ATM debit or credit card for a fee of just $2.75.
Balance inquiries and transfers are free.
The ATM was placed as after numerous requests were received by the Gilmer County Commission to provide the service.
Self Suds Laundromat won the sealed bid vendor selection process. “It may seem like an unlikely service for us to offer.” says laundromat owner John M. Brown, “But in a small town you have to diversify to make it. Over the last two years we have placed ATMs at 33 Country Club, Glenville Inn (formerly Best Western), Glenville State College, and at our laundromat on Main Street across the Glenville Post Office.”
County Commissioner Darrel Ramsey commented “The Commission is pleased to team with a local vendor. We want to keep every job possible in Gilmer County.” Answering a question raised by a resident Ramsey added “We don’t make a profit on the fee. John’s company collects the fee and uses it to cover the cost of providing the service and to pay annual rent to the Commission for the space occupied by the ATM.”
The ATM is available during regular courthouse hours: Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
