Partnership between US Bank and West Side community may be in the works

The Coalition to Save Community Banking will brief the West Side community on its efforts to reach a community benefits agreement with US Bank at an upcoming meeting. The coalition met this week with bank officials and elected officials. US Bank took over the branch offices of Park National Bank, which federal regulators shut down in fall 2009.
