Though January saw a slow down in building permits for Sunnyside, there was construction activity as Grace Brethren Church in town had 61 windows replaced.

January may be a month to start a new year and new resolutions, but it’s not a month to start new building projects.

That’s according to building permits the city of Sunnyside issued last month. Typically not a time for construction, the month of January saw only 17 projects greenlighted with a total combined valuation of just $60,783.

More than half of that combined total, $30,917, was for a project to replace 61 windows at the Sunnyside Grace Brethren Church, 703 E. Franklin Ave. Albrecht Windows & Doors of Sunnyside was listed as contractor for the project, which installed vinyl windows at the church.

Though total valuation was not significant in January, the month did see progress made on some larger projects. That included city officials giving the go-ahead for mechanical and plumbing permits for new duplex units at 1206 Ida Belle Lane.

There was also progress in January on the Sunnyside High School building addition, as city hall gave thumbs up on installation of fire sprinklers in the new addition.

The 17 permits issued last month generated $1,997 in permit fees for Sunnyside city coffers.

This doesn't surprise me when you have a city council like sunnyside. Keep doing the same thing over and over and not reaching out to promote business building.

Instead of a mandatory meeting and getting home, hire a manager that has full interest in the city and knows how to create projects that are profitable. A city of rich farmers and we can't even grow trees. A city that should be profiting because it is an agricultural city yet its blinded by stupidity. Let some young people that are motivated to make a change.
