MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A cleaning company blamed for damaging the state Capitol's marble floors is being asked to pay a total of $18,000 for repairs.
A Wisconsin State Journal report says the state Department of Administration believes the damage was caused by battery acid from the company's cleaning machine.
The state said in late December it had fired the cleaning company, Peterson Cleaning, but it was still trying to determine exactly what damaged the marble and 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.
