In the first action, the Fed ordered Lake County Bank in Saint Ignatius, Mont., to devise a plan to strengthen the oversight by its board and its risk-management practices. It also must come up with a program to improve its internal review and grading of its loan portfolio and a plan to bolster earnings.

The other enforcement action was taken against Paradise Bank in Boca Raton, Fla. Under its agreement with the Fed, Paradise Bank must create a plan to improve its management and operations and credit risk management practices, among other things.
