The March 28 hail storm that struck part of Belton contributed to the City issuing 295 roofing permits in April. The one-month figure more than tripled the amount of permits issued in that category in all of 2013.
Roofing permits are recorded in a miscellaneous permit category along with permits for residential fences, uncovered porches, and storage buildings. In 2013, the City issued a total of 87 permits. The roofing permits had a valuation of about $3 million, according to the City's Monthly Building Report.
Roofing permits are $25 each.
Other notable building permits issued in April, include one to build a new Valero at Loop 121 and U.S. 190 ($2 million) and another for an addition at an assisted living center ($2.38 million).
