It's promising to be a good year for builders around Detroit Lakes, according to Community Development Director Larry Remmen.

"Looking at the building permit report, which includes permits requested from January though June, so far our total building permits are valued at $6.6 million," said Remmen.


The report compares that number to stats from the past three years.

Permits this year are up from 2009 at this time, when permits totaled $4.4 million.
