First Bank and Trust Remodel Project Now Complete

The First Bank and Trust Co. remodel that began about one year ago is nearly complete. The public is invited to check out the updated space during an open house event on November 18.

The goal of the remodel was to update the facility itself and incorporate new technology to better serve customers.

“Everything was getting pretty tired and there have been so many changes that the traditional banking facility with the big teller line is out of date and obsolete. So we decided to take a good, hard look at the building and see what we wanted to do to freshen it up,” President Kelley Ayres said.
