Mariposa County Emergency Bank Closures – DBO Proclamation

Extraordinary Situation Proclaimed in Mariposa County

On July 18, 2017, Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. proclaimed a state of emergency in the County of Mariposa due to the effects of the Detwiler Fire, which has burned thousands of acres, damaged power, water and communication infrastructure, threatened homes and caused the evacuation of residents.  Consequently, Commissioner of Business Oversight Jan Lynn Owen has determined that an extraordinary situation exists in Mariposa County and has issued a proclamation authorizing state-chartered banks to close any or all of their offices in affected areas until the Commissioner determines the extraordinary condition has ended.
