Fewer residential permits being issued in Janesville
The number of residential permits issued in Janesville so far this year is less than one-quarter the number in 2007.
Officials say permits totaled 220 in 2007 and may not top 50 this year. A drop in the third quarter numbers is even more dramatic Only 13 permits were issued this year compared to 30 the same time last year.
The most recent decline was expected though, because a State of Wisconsin tax incentive program ended April 30th.
