Building activity for the City of Madison and Madison County has remained steady this year. Renee Demps, of the Madison County Building Inspector’s office, said that so far, building permits have been issued for nine new homes in the county. “That’s not including August,” she said. Last year, a total of 23 new homes were built in Madison County. “We haven’t had any new homes built in a while in the City of Madison,” Mary Graham, with the city’s building department, said. Right now, Graham said the city is working with United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) grant funds, the State Housing Incentive Program (SHIP) and Community Development Block Grant funds to renovate and repair some of the homes in the city. The city has had no permits pulled for new businesses but they have had permits pulled for the two new charter schools in the city.
