Important Update on First Security Marble Branch Closure

First Security would like to thank the Marble Rock community for its patience during the recent closure of the Marble Rock office of First Security Bank & Trust. First Security was forced to close this office on October 1st after heavy rains caused structural damage to portions of the building above the main entrance. Since then, employees have been working to determine what it would take to reopen this facility. The bank has had multiple inspections, including one just this week, and it has been concluded that, with some repairs, First Security will be able to safely reopen the Marble Rock facility by early December.
