Residential permits up in Madison County
NEW RESIDENTIAL building permits are up in south Madison County, with Ridgeland and unincorporated areas set to meet or surpass last year’s numbers.
The city of Madison is down a bit from last year so far, at least in terms of the number of permits.
“We are a bit down in the number of units, but not in terms of moneys collected,” said Building and Permits Director George Ellmore.
“The homes are more expensive.”
