The former president of Belmont Bancorp in Bridgeport, Ohio, has angrily resigned from the board of directors, claiming that the board deliberately excluded him from meetings and denied him access to “basic financial information.”

J. Vincent Ciroli submitted his letter of resignation Dec. 28., ending a long standoff with Belmont’s chairman, W. Quay Mull 2d. Mr. Ciroli, who had refused to relinquish his board seat when he stepped down as president and chief executive officer in June 1999, said he was resigning because the board failed to notify him of meetings or give him the standard information packages sent to all other directors.
