Minto Construction Slows

New construction continues to lag behind last year in the town of Minto.

But Chief Building Official Terry Kuipers notes that building permits are still running ahead of the ten-year average by about $750,000.

There were $5.5-million in building permits issued to the end of May this year.

Kuipers says he’s still optimistic the year will see a turn around. He says there is a good number of building permits in the works.
