Ray County Public Water District No. 2 may have a new home sometime in the future.
Superintendent John Richey said the district has no immediate plans to move, but will in the future.
Last week the Ray County Zoning Commission approved the application to rezone about eight acres south of the Burlington Northern railroad, east of Highway 10 and west of Leathers Road from residential-agriculture to service and office.
Property owner Quentin Leathers explained to the commission that he planned on selling the land to District No. 2, which Richey confirmed yesterday.
Richey said the location would be more centrally located for customers and would offer easier parking for delivery trucks. The district’s offices are currently located just east of the square in Richmond on Main Street.
Richey said land acquisition is the first step and the district has no time table for construction to begin.
