Kentucky Farmers Bank of Catlettsburg has entered into a purchase and assumption agreement to take over the bank’s deposits.The Louisa bank has been operating since 2006 and had nearly $30 million in total assets.
The bank will reopen Saturday morning as Kentucky Farmers Bank and will resume normal business hours.
