Minidoka County Sees An Increase Of Building Permits


By Andrew Reed

Rupert, Idaho (KMVT-TV) Minidoka County is seeing an increase of building permits this year.

The County has issued more than three-hundred permits for 2012.

Building official Tony Morley said, building permits remain fairly steady in the area and with the recent recession the county hasn't seen a construction slow down.

"We're just excited about what is happening in Minidoka County were setting records with building permits that's because of our location. We are located right here along the freeway corridor and the Snake River. Nobody has access to the Snake River like we do, a lot of people appreciate that and recognize that and would like to plug that into their future plans” said Tony Morley Building Administrator, Minidoka County.

Morley said, many of the permits that have been issued are manufacturing companies.
