MADISON, Wis. -

Madison Mayor Paul Soglin said upgrades to the Monona Terrace have to be done even if the facelift may cost more than $1 million.

“We start cutting corners and you start presenting a dilapidated old building, and you start losing significant numbers of customers,” said Soglin.

The bathrooms, carpet and sprinkler system are all on the City’s to-do list for the facility.

Madison’s Common Council approved the process for the city to start getting bids for the work Tuesday night.
