Illinois Executive Mansion underwent $3 million in repairs in 2014

Posted:
SPRINGFIELD - According to documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, the Illinois Executive Mansion underwent about $3 million in repairs last summer.

The documents state the repairs included patching roof leaks that contributed to black mold and damaged walls.  A valve was also installed to help prevent flooding, and an emergency generator was replaced.

Approximately $2.8 million more in repairs, including repairing woodwork and replacing an outdated elevator, are pending at the Capital Development Board.  However, the bids for those projects have expired.

In a statement, the board said that Governor Bruce Rauner is planning a comprehensive restoration of the mansion, but that no completion date has been set.
