17:9A-10. Hearing on application for charter; notice and publication
If the commissioner shall find that the certificate of incorporation and the affidavit specified in section 9 comply with the requirements of this act, he shall designate a time and a place for a hearing upon the application for charter, which shall be not less than six weeks and not more than eight weeks after the date of the submission of the application for the charter to the commissioner. Within ten days from the day upon which the commissioner makes such designation, the incorporators shall cause publication to be begun of a notice of the application for charter. Such publication shall be made once a week for four successive weeks in one newspaper to be designated by the commissioner, published and circulated in the municipality in which the bank or savings bank proposes to maintain its principal office, or, if there be no such newspaper, then in one published in the county in which the bank or savings bank proposes to maintain its principal office, or in an adjoining county, and which has a general circulation in such municipality. The notice shall specify the names of the proposed incorporators, the name of the proposed bank or savings bank, the location of its principal office, the amount of its capital stock and surplus or the amount of its capital deposits, as the case may be, and the time and place fixed for the hearing. At least three weeks before the date set for hearing, the incorporators shall cause a copy of the notice to be mailed to every banking institution which has its principal office or a branch office within five miles of the place where the principal office of the proposed bank or savings bank will be located, and to such other banking institutions as the commissioner may designate.
