Bill for damaged marble at Capitol is $18,000


MADISON (WKOW) – A cleaning company blamed for damaging the state Capitol's marble floors is asked to pay $18,000 for repairs.

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, the state Department of Administration believes the damage was caused by battery acid from the company's cleaning machine.  In late December, the state fired Peterson Cleaning, but they were not sure what exactly damaged the marble or how much repairs would cost.

DOA spokeswoman Stephanie Marquis says the final restoration bill came out to $18,000.  She says the state won't pay the remaining $12,700 it owes the company and the state is asking Peterson to reimburse an additional $5,300.

A message left with Peterson Cleaning on Monday was not immediately returned.
