Bank of Pontiac is celebrating its yearlong project of remodeling the entire first floor of the downtown Fairbury location with an open house this Saturday (March 2) as a way to say thank you the community.

“They’ve been very supportive of Bank of Pontiac and we hope they are as happy with the project as we are,” said Bank of Pontiac President and CEO Mark Donovan.

Coffee and treats will be catered by Coffee Steamer from 11 to 1 and the public is invited.

The 5,000 square foot area has been put back into use after an extensive renovation.

“We have created some new offices, some new work areas, a completely new lobby area and we’ve got a nice conference room and break room for employees,” explained Donovan.

Currently, the second phase of the project is being completed as they did the lobby side of the building first.

“The community has supported us over the last 12 years and it’s good to be able to give back and provide them a high-quality community bank facility,” added Donovan.

Bank of Pontiac still has the auto bank on Route 24 in Fairbury which is actually the second busiest of all the bank locations for transactions.

It has been an exciting time for the bank as they completed the acquisition of Farmers Merchants Bank of Illinois in January, adding three more locations in Piper City, Melvin and Paxton.

“We are excited to expand our service area and to welcome a talented group of employees and three new communities to Bank of Pontiac."
