COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – A lobby leads to a three-star general’s office is renovated, the cost to the taxpayer of $387,000.
The government Gazette reports the renovation bill was about $130,000 more than the average price of a home in the Pikes Peak region.
Air Force Academy officials refused to give a detailed list of how the money is spent.
Academy spokesman, Lt.-Col. All Heritage said the total cost is approved by a committee as well as of the Pentagon.
About $16,000 went in the direction of solving problems about fire codes.
Other changes include new carpeting and lighting.
Heritage said Superintendent Lt. Gen. Michelle Johnson attracts many guests.
He said about 800 visitors in the foyer each year.
