Building permits fall behind 2016 for the first time

Rockdale building permits for 2017 had surpassed their 2016 totals all year.

Until October.

Permits totaled only $9,500, the lowest total of the year, in the month just passed.

That lifted the 2017 year-to-date figure over the $1.2-million mark, to $1,206,817.

But, for the first time this year, that dropped 2017 behind the 2016 pace.

Through the first 10 months of 2016 permits totaled $1,257,630.

For the year of 2016, permits totaled $1,483,551.

Permits are issued at City Hall and reflect only construction within the city limits.

September permits were issued to the following:

• New Modern Sign, commercial sign, 460 Mill.

• Jeff Miller, residential patio, 1802 O’Kelley.

• Manuel Garcia, residential addition, 1006 Bullock.

• Emmet McBride, residential structure, 630 Rice
