The granting of 21 land use and zoning permits in Wadena last month is the best economic news Planning and Zoning Director Byron Larson has seen in this town in a while, he said.


"It was a very good May," Larson said.

The city issued more permits in May 2009 than a year ago, he said. There were also $692,000 total dollars for May projects this year compared to just over a million dollars last year, which included the $888,000 Leaf River Ag project.
