Capitol contractor fired for staining marble


MADISON (WKOW) – State officials fired a cleaning company who they believe was responsible for damaging the marble floors in the Capitol.

According to the Wisconsin State Journal, the damage appears to have been caused by a cleaning solution or similar liquid.

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

Marquis said officials are still determining the cost for repairing the damage and the department is weighing possible legal steps.

The cleaning company has been replaced with a new contractor.
