Construction in the Energetic City continues to charge ahead of last year’s pace.
The monthly building numbers from the City show 33 permits for construction were issued in July, worth $4.94 million.
The July numbers are roughly on par with the figures from June, 2010, and keep the value of construction in 2010 at more than double the 2009 levels.
So far in 2010, Fort St. John has issued 175 construction permits worth almost $28 million, compared to 144 permits worth almost $12.5 million at the same time last year.
