  2.  Every report shall be verified by the oaths of the president or vice president and cashier or secretary or assistant cashier or assistant secretary, and the verification shall state that the report is true and correct in all respects to the best of the knowledge and belief of the persons verifying it, and the report shall be attested by three directors, and shall be a report of the actual condition of the bank or trust company at the close of business on the day designated and which day shall be prior to the call.  If the director of finance obtains the data pursuant to subsection 3 of section 361.130, the director may rely on the verification provided to the federal regulatory agency.

  3.  Every report, exclusive of the verification, shall, within thirty days after it shall have been filed with the director, be published by the bank or trust company in one newspaper of the place where its place of business is located, or if no newspaper is published there, in a newspaper of general circulation in the town and community in which the bank or trust company is located; the newspaper to be designated by the board of directors and a copy of the publication, with the affidavit of the publisher thereto, shall be attached to the report; provided, if the bank or trust company is located in a town or city having a population exceeding ten thousand inhabitants, then the publication must be in a daily newspaper, if published in that city; but if the bank or trust company is located in a town or city having a population of ten thousand inhabitants or less, then the publication may be in either a daily or weekly newspaper published in the town or city as aforesaid; and in all cases a copy of the statement shall be posted in the banking house accessible to all.

  4.  The bank and trust company shall also make such other special reports to the director as he may from time to time require, in such form and at such date as may be prescribed by him, and the report shall, if required by him, be verified in such manner as he may prescribe.

  5.  If the bank or trust company shall fail to make any report required by this section on or before the day designated for the making thereof, or shall fail to include therein any matter required by the director, the bank or trust company shall forfeit to the state the sum of one hundred dollars for every day that the report shall be delayed or withheld, and for every day that it shall fail to report any omitted matter, unless the time therefor shall have been extended by the director.  Should any president, cashier or secretary of the bank or trust company or any director thereof fail to make the statement so required of him or them, or willfully and corruptly make a false statement, he or they, and each of them, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and, upon conviction thereof, upon information, punished by a fine for each offense not exceeding five hundred dollars and not less than one hundred dollars, or by imprisonment not less than one or more than twelve months in the city or county jail, or by both such fine and imprisonment.

  6.  A bank or trust company may provide each written report required to be published free of charge to the public; and when each bank or trust company notifies their customers that such information is available; and when one copy of such information is available to each person that requests it, the newspaper publication provisions of this section shall not be enforced against such bank or trust company.
