Cleaning Company Damages Wis. Capitol Marble

Posted: Updated: Dec 23, 2012 09:40 PM

MADISON, Wisconsin (AP) -- State officials have fired a cleaning company they believe was responsible for damaging or staining marble floors in the Capitol.

A Wisconsin State Journal report says the damage appears to have been caused by a cleaning solution or similar liquid.

Department of Administration spokeswoman Stephanie Marquis says the solution apparently leaked from a floor-scrubbing machine operated by the contractor.

She says officials are still determining the cost for repairing the damage. She also says the department is weighing possible legal steps.

A message left with the department over the weekend seeking the name of the contractor was not immediately returned.

The cleaning company has been replaced with a new contractor.
