OKOLONA, Miss. (WCBI)-The Bank of Okolona could be locally controlled soon. The Bank is seeking to acquire Omni Bank out of Mantee which would give the bank locations in Okolona, Houston, and Mantee. This would bring back a local control to better serve customers. The bank in Mantee will be the same just under a different name. The Bank of Okolona also said they have no plans to change the personnel at the Mantee Bank. The paperwork for the purchase began September 7th and is expected to be finalized by December 7th.
