Construction still strong; new home starts lagging

The building trades had another strong month in August when $5.53 million worth of building permits were issued in Levelland.

One permit worth $5 million was issued to Roy Owens Construction.

The company is building a transloading facility in Levelland Industrial Rail Park.

When that work is finished, the Penny Newman Co. will accept cottonseed by truck and ship it out by rail.

A total of 26 permits was issued by the city last month.

Two of them, valued at $110,000, were for remodeling dwellings.

Those permits came on the heels of another strong month: Nearly $2.5 million in permits were awarded here in July.
