Together We Will Keep Our Communities Running


April 1, 2020

Whether you are with a state or local government, or a business serving their financial needs, these are difficult times. Municipalities are facing a new challenge – the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic – which they must confront while maintaining daily operations as much as possible and continuing to plan for what’s ahead.

We want to assure you that we are open for business and helping alleviate financial uncertainty for municipalities and their funding partners.

Baystone Government Finance continues to provide financing for state and local governments just as we have for 30 years, allowing them to use much needed equipment and technology while preserving their current capital. Over the years, we have refined our processes to best serve our clients and offer flexible payment options, straightforward documentation and fast credit decisions.

Both Baystone and KS StateBank have taken steps to protect our employees and customers, but we are still dedicated to your needs. Nothing will affect our responsiveness or quality of service to you. We’re fully staffed and accessible by phone, email and our website during normal business hours. While some of us may be working from our home offices, we are still available.

Timely and practical financial solutions for municipalities are still essential, now more than ever. Working together we will keep our communities running – and will come through this time even stronger.
