- PCB Press Release: Peoples
Community Bank has partnered with the Town of Warsaw to
help make needed improvements to the town's water
systems infrastructure. PCB has provided
a 24 month loan to the Town of Warsaw in the amount of
$350,000. The rate is being provided at .50% with a no
fee closing (the typical rate for this type of loan
would be approx. 4% which illustrates the town’s loan
being priced well below market and competition).
Providing a local source of a secure and affordable
financing package to the town would serve to help many
on a local level - the residents of Warsaw, who include
many of our customers, employees and stock holders.
With the daily headlines of sequester and rising taxes,
we here at PCB felt that every single opportunity to
save money for the tax payers is a good thing. As
a result, the town and the citizens of Warsaw will
receive an improved water system, and they did not have
to pay a lot for it.

campaigns such as the auto loan program at 1.90%, the
home equity line program at 3.25%, and the commercial
loan program with rates as low as 4.00% enable us to
continue to provide excellent value and quality service
for years to come. We invite those interested to visit
