The fix it list

Posted October 7, 2013

On June 10, 1840, the State Capitol building officially opened.

— Gov. Pat McCrory's administration has released a $90 million repair and renovation to-do list. 

As The Associated Press reported earlier, "The state budget office described Monday where it wants to spend $90 million the General Assembly earmarked to improve state agency buildings. Lawmakers also voted this year to allocate $60 million to fix University of North Carolina system buildings."

The department announced the list via news release, and a memo describing all the projects is online as well.

The list covers everything from repairs to the windows in the historic State Capitol Building to structural repairs to parking decks. Roof repairs, chiller replacements and fire alarm systems are also on the upkeep list. Other items include:

  • Replacing the handicapped lift at the lieutenant governor's office. ($25,000)
  • Replace chillers, hot water pumps and converters at the New Revenue Building. ($438,800)
  • Renovate bathrooms on the second floor of the executive mansion. ($230,000)
  • Security improvements at the Charlotte Farmer's Market. ($196,000)
  • Removal of lead paint and asbestos and other repairs to the Old Health Building. ($898,000)
  • Repairs to the roofs of 84 structures in 18 state parks across the state. ($522,400)

    If the money does not come from taxpayers, where does it come from?

    Seriously? $230,000 to renovate the upstairs bathrooms in the governors mansion? Seriously? -Come On Seriously

    I can see that as a reasonable expense with as much carp being dumped on the citizens of North Carolina lately.

    Instead of spending all this money, can't we get Lt Dan to just call on a bunch of his buddies in the construction biz to volunteer to get all this done?
