Gow Wants To See Buildings Renovated
There are 5 or 6 buildings on the campus of UW-L that are not equipped with sprinkler systems. That's because when they were built in the 50's and 60's, they were not required to have them installed. Now, they are required to have them in the buildings. Would that have helped the fire at Drake Hall Sunday?
Chancellor Joe Gow says they want to renovate and place sprinkler systems in all of the older buildings....but at $7 million a crack...finding funding may slow things down a bit.
