The Rayburn Township Joint Municipal Authority is moving from its office at 108 Keystone Blvd. to the township's municipal building next week.

Township officials offered the authority a portion of its building at 105 McGregor Road rent-free to cut costs, Supervisor Gregg Smith said.

Smith said the move will save the township about $12,000 per year.

“We figured since we already own the building and we're already paying utilities, it's silly to pay for them at a second building,” Smith said. “We have the room for the authority and for other offices as the township continues to grow.”

The authority agreed to pave the municipal building's parking lot to accommodate more visitors, Smith added.

Authority Secretary Douglas Rupert said the authority, which oversees all water and sewage line placements and upgrades in Rayburn, plans to move on Saturday and open on Monday.

“We're going to save money and make township services more convenient by putting it all in one building,” Smith said.
