Concerns about the Y-2-K computer bug have prompted some Iowa banks tochange their hours for the upcoming New Year’s holiday. Though we’re just in the first week of June, several banks now say they’llbe open Saturday, January 1st of 2000 and Sunday, January 2nd, to givecustomers access to their cash and their accounts.Iowa Bankers Association spokesman Ben Hildebrandt says it’s a shrewd movefor banks to make that announcement this far in advance.Hildebrandt says people should treat New Year’s like any other long holidayweekend by taking out their usual amount of spending money. Still others, fearing a computer-triggered disaster, will take out mounds of money. Hesays that’s unwise and unnecessary.
