Even considering that 1976 was a slow year for construction the new figures exceed even the $313,200 spent on new Homes in the same period in 1975. The total for the first half of 1977 indicate a continuation of the growth trend with a Sharp Rise of $140,000 Over the 1976 figures which were in turn up slightly Over 1975 in 1975, 39 permits were issued to projects totalling $689,400.

Bertram anyone planning to celebrate Bertram s going wet will have to wait at least three weeks before they can buy either Beer or wine in Bertram for off premises consumption according to Burnet county clerk Wayne Barton. At the end of last week Only one person picked up an application for a permit and he not yet returned it to be filed. Barton explained that the Steps to getting a permit to sell Beer and wine begin with picking up an application at the clerk s office filling it in and returning it to the clerk. The clerk is then responsible for posting a notice and publishing another notice stating that application has been made for a License. After two weeks a hearing is held by a county judge who must weigh any objections to the application before he approves or rejects it. Of the judge approves the application he signs it and sends it along its Way to the liquor control Board lab in Austin. The lab then processes the application the applicant pays the fee for the License and then approximately three weeks after the first step the applicant is a Licensee and is free to purvey his under the spreading Oaks of the Honky b ranch we a the the Al tonight s agriculture Taw Barbecue. Though the first half of 1976 was generally a slump period it was exceptional in institutional construction.

Repairs Are also of greater value $49,7001 than either 1975 $36,175 or 1976 $21,614even though the number of permits has slightly decreased. Asked if he expected the rest of the year to hold with this trend Goble conjectured that the trend would hold. He cited new Industry As the basis for his projection and added that builders could be expected to put up a few houses on speculation since As Many As one Hundred new jobs May be opening up in the near future. Because of the mild Winters in the area there is no reason Goble said to limit building to the Spring months As Northern areas Are obliged to do.
