SOMERSET Regional Council Mayor Graeme Lehmann has expressed his disappointment over the confirmed closure of ANZ Bank Kilcoy.

The branch at 36 William Street will close at 4pm on Thursday, 27 February, with the official announcement declaring “we’re still here to help”.

“ANZ’s decision seems strange when you’ve got a business in Kilcoy with more than 1,200 employees and continued population and employment growth throughout the area,” Cr Lehmann said.

“This comes four years after ANZ closed its Toogoolawah branch, telling customers to continue banking in Kilcoy.

“ANZ also dropped its agency arrangement with Australia Post in January 2019, so I don’t know what they expect their local business customers to do now.

“Council will lobby ANZ to at least retain an ATM in Kilcoy that accepts deposits from business customers.

“I’m sure ANZ’s remaining Somerset customers will let them know how they feel about this latest closure.

“Fortunately in Somerset we’ve got a network of licensed post offices which act as agents for the Commonwealth Bank, National Australia Bank and Westpac, as well as full National Australia Bank and Bendigo Bank branches.”
