Tami Wise with Central Point of Coordination asked supervisors to approve the use of a Corporate credit card for new accounts. This would allow their office to control all spending and have receipts for each expenditure. Much thought has been put into this system. Wise says she will use the US Bank of Marshalltown for the Credit Cards as local banks do not do this type of credit card.
