DOA still awaiting damage report caused by Capitol protests

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin officials expect to get a damage report on the Capitol later this week.

Carla Vigue, a spokesperson with the Department of Administration says the report was expected Monday, but they did not receive it. Vigue says it will be released after officials receive and review it.

Restoration expert Charles Quagliana says he is "waiting for feedback" from the DOA. Quagliana says the report will detail the extent and the staff hours needed to repair damage caused by protesters at the Capitol.

Thousands demonstrated for weeks against Governor Scott Walker's plan to strip most collective bargaining rights for most public employees.

DOA Secretary Mike Huebsch initially estimated it would cost $7.5 million to repair damage. He later revised that, saying it could cost as little as $350,000.
