On August 14th, Savings Bank of Danbury broke ground to mark the start of construction on its newest branch located on Sullivan Court in New Milford. The building represents the Bank’s 14th branch, and its second location in New Milford. Attendees included: Mayor Patricia Murphy; Gary Hawley, Vice Chairman, Savings Bank of Danbury/President, Hawley Construction; Don Mitchell, Director; Luigi Fulinello, Town of New Milford Economic Development Supervisor; Denise DelMastro, Executive Director, New Milford Chamber of Commerce, and Cheryl Bakewell, President, New Milford Chamber of Commerce.
The Sullivan Court branch will showcase the Bank’s newest technological offerings, and will also serve as office and training space. The branch will include new features such as a “smart” ATM that provides customers with images of all checks deposited, an advanced “technology station” that will showcase the bank’s progressive electronic banking products, and video conferencing to offer customers immediate access to residential mortgage, small business banking or investment representatives with no appointment necessary. The branch was designed to allow customers to bank the way they prefer to bank – in person, by phone or online.
“Since the opening of our existing branch in the Big Y Shopping Center, we have watched the New Milford community continue to grow and expand. We look forward to further developing our relationships here and continuing to support the community through the Bank’s Foundation, general contributions budget and volunteerism” said Kathy Romagnano, the Bank’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
