Building permits take steep drop in the city

GLENDALE , The number of building permits issued by city officials has reached its lowest point in nearly 10 months, a byproduct of an economy hit by slumping housing prices, the high cost of gasoline and ongoing problems in the financial sector, officials said Monday. So far in July, Glendale’s Permits & Inspections department issued 144 housing and business permits. A steep drop from May and June this year, when the city handed out 211 permits both months, and authorized 232 in April, said Juan Diaz, customer service representative. In 2007, officials issued more than 200 permits in every month except September. That month the city authorized 109 permits, during a period that Diaz called an anomaly.
