MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin taxpayers may not have to spend almost a half-million dollars to renovate kitchen facilities at the Governor’s Mansion.
The Walker administration said Wednesday that the non-profit Executive Residence Foundation will try to raise donations for the project. And if they don’t get enough, Administration Secretary Mike Huebsch said tax dollars would again be sought.
The project includes an upgrading of the main kitchen on the first floor, plus a kitchenette in the private living quarters on the second floor.
It’s been 26 years since the main kitchen was renovated – and the residential kitchen has not been improved since the late 1960’s.
