The funds for a money order must be prepaid in the form of cash or check drawn off a Blue Grass Valley Bank account, so it’s a more trusted method of payment than a check. Money orders must be signed by the purchaser. They are available to customers and non-customers.

We offer convenient night depository boxes at the Blue Grass and Monterey offices for customers who can’t get to the bank during business hours. You can place your deposits, loan payments and other transactions in the bank’s night depository box, which will be checked on the morning of the next business day. Any transactions are then processed with that day’s work.
You may request a stop payment be placed on a check written on your account that has not already been accepted by The Blue Grass Valley Bank for processing. Once the stop payment order is in effect, the payee will not get any money, and the funds will not be deducted from your account.
A stop payment may be requested in-person or by phone, though it must be signed within fourteen (14) days. When confirmed in writing, a stop payment order is effective for six months and will expire automatically at that time unless it is renewed in writing prior to the expiration. The bank cannot be held liable for items that are cashed or paid within one full business day of this request.
- Stop payment fee: $10.00 per check
You must provide the following information to place a stop payment on a check:
- Account number (from which the check was written)
- Check number
- Check date (what is written on the check)
- Check amount (including dollars and cents)
- Name of payee
- Name of account holder that signed the check
- Reason for the stop payment
