The Community State Bank of Missouri officially broke ground for a new banking facility last Tuesday, March 12 at the Bowling Green Town Center in Bowling Green.
The new location will serve as the locally owned and operated financial institution’s second branch and third overall location.
This expansion will offer old time traditional values with modern up-to-date training and equipment.
It will feature interactive teller machines located in the traditional drive up area of the bank, which will serve as the drive thru teller.
It will also have an ITM that serves as an ATM machine and teller. The building itself will have a traditional design as the bank has hired Federal Construction to oversee the construction of the new facility.
Bank officials note that customers will receive the same great customer service CSB has offered through the years.
The Community State Bank of Missouri is proud of their heritage and proud to have served the local community for more than 130 years.
The bank was founded in 1887 as the Bank of Curryville. It moved to Bowling Green in 1945. Another branch opened in 1998 in Troy, Mo.
CSB has grown from its humble beginnings of $10,000 to the current footings of $237 million.
Currently, the CSB Board of Directors include John M. McIlroy, Jr., chairman of the board; William C. McIlroy, president; Margaret Goodin, secretary; along with Paul B. Hill and Mark A. Goodin.
The Board of Directors is comprised of local individuals who are directly interested in the growth of the community.
They receive their deposits from local individuals and companies that do business in the community. They are also proud to be reinvesting their money in the local community with this recent expansion.
