DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - A battle to keep a bank open in a Dayton community may be over, but the war continues.
"It's unfortunate they didn't consider our cries and the dismay that we felt based on this hardship," said David K. Greer.
Nearly a week after PNC closed a branch in Westown, those cries from the community were heard once again.
This time, the community spoke against PNC in front of the Dayton city commission.
"We think that PNC needs to understand that the citizens of Dayton are not going to continue to support what they're doing," said Rev. William Schooler.
Community members voiced their concerns in Wednesday's commission meeting asking the city to stop doing business with the company.
They city owes PNC more than $100 thousand services rendered to the city.
Once that payment is made, the city says they'll take their money elsewhere.

"I think if we're willing to look for another depositor, we're sending a message," said Dayton Mayor Gary Leitzell.
It is a message one of the commissioners wanted to send in Wednesday's vote.
But after some discussion, it was found delaying the payment for services may cost the taxpayers.
"I don't know if we really have too much of a true choice here in terms that we can't neglect financial obligations we've already made," said Joey Williams, a Dayton City Commissioner.
The city will make the payment to PNC.
Community members said they hope it is the last.
"We have to strive to continue to let our leaders know what is impacting the people and how the people feel," said Greer.
The city said they will look into doing business with another bank by the end of this year or early 2014.
