HAWLEY, Minn. - The pending purchase of First National Bank, which has locations in Hawley and Dilworth, will not reduce employee numbers, according to an official with State Bank & Trust, whose parent company, State Bankshares, is buying First National.


"Some duties may change, but we would hope we can employ all of their current staff," said Richard Solberg, chairman and CEO of State Bank & Trust.

First National employs about 20 people in Hawley and Dilworth.
