In the Matter of
ALLIANCE BANK
CAPE GIRARDEAU, MISSOURI
(Insured State Nonmember Bank)
ORDER TO PAY CIVIL MONEY PENALTY

FDIC-02-151k

   Alliance Bank, Cape Girardeau, Missouri ("Bank") has been advised that a penalty may be assessed under section 102 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973 ("Flood Act"), as amended, 42 U.S.C. §4012a and Part 339 of the FDIC Rules and Regulations, 12 C.F.R. Part 339 only after receipt of a NOTICE OF ASSESSMENT OF CIVIL MONEY PENALTY, FINDINGS OF FACT AND CONCLUSIONS OF LAW, ORDER TO PAY, AND NOTICE OF HEARING ("NOTICE") issued by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") and an opportunity for a hearing on the record on the charges pursuant to 42 U.S.C. §4012a(f)(4), and the FDIC Rules of Practice and Procedure, 12 C.F.R. Part 308.

   Having waived those rights, the Bank entered into a STIPULATION AND CONSENT TO THE ISSUANCE OF AN ORDER TO PAY CIVIL MONEY PENALTY ("CONSENT AGREEMENT") with a representative of the Legal Division of the FDIC, whereby solely for the purpose of this proceeding and without admitting or denying any violations, the Bank consented and agreed to pay a civil money penalty in the amount of $4,500 for violations of section 102 of the Flood Act, 42 U.S.C. §4012a, and Part 339 of the FDIC Rules and Regulations, 12 C.F.R. Part 339, cited at the FDIC's April 10, 2002 examination, in that it has made, increased, extended or renewed loans secured by a building or mobile home located or to be located in a special flood hazard area without requiring that the collateral be covered by flood insurance for the term of the loan or that the collateral be covered by sufficient flood insurance for the term of the loan as required by 12 C.F.R. §339.3. In addition, it has made, increased, extended or renewed loans secured by a building or mobile home located or to be located in a special flood hazard area without furnishing the notice required by 12 C.F.R. §339.9. The FDIC considered the matter and determined it had reason to believe that the Bank has engaged or participated in violations of law or regulations for which a civil money penalty of $4,500 is appropriate to be assessed against the Bank, pursuant to section 102 of the Flood Act, 42 U.S.C. §4012a, and Part 339 of the FDIC Rules and Regulations, 12 C.F.R. Part 339.
