36 permits worth $9.4 million of construction were issued in the county

According to recently released numbers, construction permits in Putnam County continued at a strong pace in June. 36 permits worth $9.4 million of construction were issued in the county.

26 of those were for new single-family residential homes, and that number is very reminiscent of last year in June which also saw 36 permits. Those permits were worth $5.9M, and only 18 were built for single family builds.

Nationally, by comparison, authorizations for single family homes in May was 949,000 (2.9% below April’s number of 977,000). Single‐family authorizations in May were at a rate of 949,000; this is 2.9% below the revised April figure of 977,000. Building Permits for privately‐owned housing units nationally in May sat at 1,386,000, according to www.census.gov/.

Nationally in the month of May:

  • Building Permits: 1,386,000  
  • Housing Starts: 1,277,000  
  • Housing Completions: 1,514,000  
  • Construction spending: $2,139.8 billion

“June permits generated $35,035 in fees which operates the Building Codes Department,” said Putnam County Mayor Randy Porter. “For the Fiscal Year (July 2023-June 2024) 397 permits, $86.9 million in construction with 247 new homes.”

The numbers for Putnam County. They do not include any of the four cities.
