Last month 102 permits were issued at a value of $7.1 million compared to 162 permits issued at a value of $6.7 million in August 2009.

While commercial permit values show a decrease over August, industrial permit values are up $8 million for the year to date, due significantly to a permit issued to Camdon Construction for an addition to Quinn’s Pumps at 4080-77 St., valued at $6.9 million.

Other contributing industrial permits were to Phoenix Construction for an addition to the sandblasting shop for Badger Daylighting at 6740-64 Ave. valued at $405,000 and to CSI Projects Ltd. for office space for Parkland Geo at 4756 Riverside Dr. valued at $400,000.
