Remodel permits big money in July
Rockdale Building Materials hired Butch Malone to put on a new roof valued at $109,200 early in July. Another permit was issued last week to begin a $100,000 remodel at the company.
The Kay Theatre group has begun another phase of its remodel for the 1940s- era building. The permit issued cited $37,000 in improvement during this phase.
The project is an ongoing effort to restore the building for use as a community center and performing arts venue.
Permit numbers were actually down for the month, with $175,552 issued in June, compared to $225,565.11 in June.
July’s numbers bring the fiscal year’s total, which started in October 2011, to $988,505.11.
The 2012 calendar year total is now at $893,455.11.
Permits are issued at City Hall and reflect only construction in the city limits.
