Oglesby collects over 3 million in building permits

Posted by wlpo on July 21, 2015

With a new medical marijuana facility well on its way, the city of Oglesby saw over 3 million dollars enter the city by way of building permits in the last quarter.

According to the NewsTribune, the city council accepted the builder inspectors report for the last quarter at last night’s city council meeting. Total projects equaled 3.7 million dollars, thanks in large part to 2.7 million from Green Thump Industries, the company building the medical marijuana plant.

Oglesby Mayor Don Finley joked that he wished the city could see those numbers every quarter. He said the construction project was well underway, and that the company hopes to start cultivating the medical marijuana in September.
