Basehor bank has no fefinite timetable for move to new site

October 9, 2003

There is no timetable set for when First State Bank and Trust may move its operation to a new location in the city, said Jilinda White, First State Bank and Trust senior vice president.

First State Bank and Trust, 1106 N. 155th St., a Basehor financial institution since 1989, has an option for acreage inside the Pinehurst development south of U.S. Highway 24/40.

"We don't have any definite plans but we are planning for expansion," White said. "We have found ourselves in a position where we're growing and need more space."

Recently, the bank expanded its Basehor operation by moving the lenders and mortgage departments into the north wing of its building, White said.

A new facility would allow the bank to "encompass all lines of business," White said.

"It's a medium range plan and we're excited about all the changes," White said.
