(Owen Sound) -
New construction in the city of Owen Sound in September kept pace with the level of a year, but the dollar value for the work is down.
But the value of the work was about 1.6 million dollars compared to over two million dollars.
No new homes were started, while seven new homes were under construction a year ago.
Owen Sound Development Co-ordinator Sandi Parks says so far in 2012, nearly 14 million dollars worth of construction has started, compared with 13.3 million a year ago.
