Construction

City building officials in Killeen issued 151 permits last week.

There were five permits issued for the construction of new single-family residences last week. Contractors D.R. Horton will build four new houses, while Central Texas Comfort Homes will build the final new house.

The new homes were given a valuation of $0 in accordance with Texas House Bill 852, which states that cities can no longer ask for or report project values for residential construction permits when determining permit values.

Per the bill, a city “may not require the disclosure of information related to the value of or cost of constructing or improving a residential dwelling as a condition of obtaining a building permit except as required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program.”
