The Bank ended 2016 with a Leverage Capital ratio of 11.66% and a Total Capital ratio of 17.00%. This is well above the ratios required to be considered a well capitalized bank. Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses ended the year at $1,484,796 or 1.25% of total loans. Past due and non-accrual loans remain very low at just 0.3%.
