Comings and Goings: Reopening of local bank, new YMCA in Meridian


Mountain West Bank has re-opened its renovated downtown Boise branch.

The grand re-opening was held this past week for the branch at 16th and State streets.

According to branch manager Mike Harris, the renovated offices are perfectly suited to meet the needs of Boise's north end neighbors.
