Mayor says 2008 was good for Rosemount
Mayor Bill Droste started his State of the City address Tuesday with talk of a difficult economy but most of his 20-minute speech focused on the good things that happened last year in Rosemount.
Turns out there was a lot.
The city issued 237 building permits last year, 90 more than in 2007. The total value of construction last year was $68 million, 7 percent more than in 2007.
