January construction numbers up from '09

By Christine Rumleskie

Last month’s construction numbers were higher than they were for the previous two Januaries.


The City issued a total of 20 permits last month, totaling $837,000. That’s up from the same month in 2009, when just ten permits were given, worth around $500,000. It’s also up from January ’08, when six permits had a value of $752,000.

But it’s also way down from December 2009, when the City issued 13 permits, worth $1.8 million.

The City’s revenue from the January sale totals $5,542.00.
