The governor has approved about 124-million dollars worth of fix-up projects for state property. Four million dollars is set aside to continue the restoration work on the inside of the capitol building in Des Moines. Seven-hundred-thousand dollars of that is being spent to fix the water damage caused when a pipe in a 4th floor attic broke on Christmas Eve, sending water cascading down through the building. It damaged freshly-painted walls and ruined newly-installed carpets. Fans have been running in that area of the building for the past six months, trying to suck that wet smell out of ceilings, walls and floors. Other fix-up projects on state property include nearly 600-thousand dollars for roof repairs and other touch-ups at Terrace Hill, the governor’s mansion in Des Moines, plus there’s money in the bill to start the restoration of the swine barn on the state fairgrounds.
