  362.030.  Director to examine as to character and capital. — 1.  When any bank or trust company has filed with the director its articles of agreement, paid all incorporation and other fees in full, as required by law and provided the cash required by law, the director, before the bank or trust company shall complete its incorporation, shall cause an examination to be made to ascertain whether the requisite capital of the bank or trust company has been subscribed in good faith and paid in actual cash and is ready for use in the transaction of business of the proposed bank or trust company, and whether the character, responsibility and general fitness of the persons named in the articles of agreement and any bank holding company on whose behalf they are acting are such as to command confidence and warrant belief that the business of the proposed corporation will be conducted honestly and efficiently in accordance with the intent and purpose of this chapter; and if the convenience and needs of the community to be served justify and warrant the opening of the bank or trust company therein, and if the probable volume of business in such locality is sufficient to insure and maintain the solvency of the new bank or trust company and the solvency of the then existing banks and trust companies in the locality, without endangering the safety of any bank or trust company in the locality as a place of deposit of public and private moneys.

  2.  The proponents shall be liable for all expenses incurred in making the examination, including the wages and other necessary expenses of each examiner making the examination; provided, however, that if the charter is granted, this obligation may be assumed by the bank or trust company so chartered.
