mADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The Department of Administration says it wants to spend almost a half-million dollars for kitchen renovations at the governor’s mansion.
The request for the improvements to both the first-floor kitchen and the second-floor private quarters kitchenette originally came from First Lady Tonette Walker.
The request was reportedly made to the State Building Commission because the first-floor kitchen hasn’t been updated for more than 26 years. That facility prepares food for more than 15 thousand visitors each year.
The Wisconsin Executive Residence Foundation is reportedly raising money for the project, but it isn’t known how much help that effort will be.
