Value of construction $37 million ahead of last year’s pace

It rose to slightly more than $27 million, from just 4.7 million, and the 2013 year-to-date eight month total is now $83.5 million, as opposed to just $46.8 million last year. That’s an increase of nearly $37 million and it has more than doubled the year-over-year seven month differential of roughly $14.5 million. 

There has also been a major jump in the year-to-date city revenue total which now exceeds $420,000. Through August of last year it was barely $236,000.
