[',e h,- lqday, February ]l, 1927 ......... El I nl i II ii I Banks Make S00rvice Charge ])car Sir ur Madam: As is well known, every line of business has been subjected 1o a marked increase in the expens f optiralion during the past tel) years. This is ilue of banking as well as in other lines of business. Banks in nearly all neighborillg communi- ties--Bellingham, Seattle, Tacoma, Spokane, Portland, Everett, and in all the smaller towns but a few miles from h,'re, now make a charge against checking accounts that do not carry a fair average balance each month. Until now, however, we have not in a general way made such charges. To cover a part of tim expense of the ser- vice rendered, it has now been decided to make a service, charge. Connnencing with the month of February, 1927, all Snohomish County banks, which have not Iler(!ffore been doing so, will note the average h:lances of all checking accounts, and thos, c rrying an average balance of less than $100.00 l'l' each month will be charged 50c for Hlat month. There will be no charge, however, on aceonnis on whic]l n,:) cheeks have been paid. We snell prefer tlJ:zt our customers would find it m'acticable to sustain an average hal- anee of $11)0.()() or more, and w(, hope you will find it practicable to do so, thus making un- necessary the service clmrge. No cllarge will b.- ,n;l(le on savings ac.. counts, l,o matter how Slmlll. We wish to assure our friends and custom- ers of our apI)reciation of their patronage and good will, and if at any time it appears to you that any charge ma(te against your account is improperly nmde, we trust you will take the matter up with an officer of the bank for any proI)er correction.
