FDIC Enforcement Decisions and Orders
Respondent agrees to pay civil money penalty assessed by the FDIC in the amount of $15,000.
In the Matter of
Hills Bank and Trust Company, Hills, Iowa ("Bank"), has been advised of its right to receive a NOTICE OF ASSESSMENT OF CIVIL MONEY PENALTY, FINDINGS OF FACT AND CONCLUSIONS OF LAW, ORDER TO PAY, AND NOTICE OF HEARING ("NOTICE OF ASSESSMENT") issued by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") detailing the violations for which a civil money penalty may be assessed against the Bank pursuant to section 8(i)(2) of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act ("Act"), 12 U.S.C. §1818(i)(2), section 305 of the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act ("HMDA"), 12 U.S.C. §2804, and section 203.6 of Regulation C of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, 12 C.F.R. §203.6, and has been further advised of its right to a hearing on the charges pursuant to section 8(i)(2)(H) of the Act, 12 U.S.C. §1818(i)(2)(H), and Part 308 of 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 of law and/or regulations for which civil money penalties may be assessed, consented to the issuance of an ORDER TO PAY CIVIL MONEY PENALTY by the FDIC and agreed to pay a civil money penalty in the amount of $15,000 to the Treasury of the United States.
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 $15,000 is appropriate to be assessed against the Bank.
The FDIC, therefore, accepts the CONSENT AGREEMENT and issues the following:
ORDER TO PAY CIVIL MONEY PENALTY
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Bank be, and hereby is, assessed a
civil money penalty of $15,000 pursuant to section 8(i)(2) of the Act,
12 U.S.C. §1818(i)(2),
the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged.
Pursuant to delegated authority.
Dated at Washington, D.C., this 23rd day of November, 2004.
