The location of any new bank office, or any change of location of a previously established bank office, shall be subject to the approval of the superintendent. No state bank shall establish a bank office outside the boundaries of the counties contiguous to or cornering upon the county in which the principal place of business of the state bank is located.
1. Except as otherwise provided in subsection 2 of this section, no state bank shall establish a bank office outside the corporate limits of a municipal corporation or in a municipal corporation in which there is already an established state or national bank or office; however, the subsequent chartering and establishment of any state or national bank, through the opening of its principal place of business within the municipal corporation where the bank office is located, shall not affect the right of the bank office to continue in operation in that municipal corporation. The existence and continuing operation of a bank office shall not be affected by the subsequent discontinuance of a municipal corporation pursuant to the provisions of sections 368.11 to 368.22. A bank office existing and operating on July 1, 1976, which is not located within the confines of a municipal corporation, shall be allowed to continue its existence and operation without regard to this subsection.
2. a. A state bank may establish any number of bank offices within the municipal corporation or urban complex in which the principal place of business of the bank is located.
b. For purposes of this subsection, "urban complex" means the geographic area bounded by the corporate limits of two or more municipal corporations, each of which being contiguous to or cornering upon at least one of the other municipal corporations within the complex. Nothing contained in this paragraph authorizes a state bank to establish a bank office outside of the boundaries of this state.
c. One such facility located in the proximity of a state bank's principal place of business may be found by the superintendent to be an integral part of the principal place of business, and not a bank office within the meaning of this section.
d. One such facility located in the proximity of a state bank's office may be found by the superintendent to be an integral part of the bank office and not a bank office within the meaning of this section.
3. Notwithstanding subsection 1, if the assets of a state or national bank in existence on January 1, 1989, are transferred to a different state or national bank in the state which is located in the same county or a county contiguous to or cornering upon the county in which the principal place of business of the acquired bank is located, the resulting or acquiring bank may convert to and operate as its bank office any one or more of the business locations occupied as the principal place of business or as a bank office of the bank whose assets are so acquired. The limitations on bank office locations contained in unnumbered paragraph 1 of this section are applicable to any bank office otherwise authorized by this subsection. A bank office established under the authority of this subsection is subject to the approval of the superintendent and shall be operated in accordance with this chapter relating to the operation of bank offices, and may be augmented by an integral facility when approved under subsection 2, paragraph "d".
