Approval of Investment Account

As required by Resolution 2019-8 I am asking for approval to open a new account with Washington Federal Bank.  State Statute requires that we invest in local banks and savings and loans that can serve our needs and Washington Federal Bank qualifies as a bank we can work with.  The account would be new and will be a  money market account and will have  the required collateralization.
Fiscal Impact:
Will help to increase investment revenue by moving funds into a proper investment opportunity.
Recommendation:
Approve opening money market fund at Washington Federal Bank
