TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A state official says $2.5 million is needed to fix problems with the plumbing, windows, roof and security at a Topeka building that houses members of the Kansas Supreme Court and Kansas Court of Appeals.

Mark McGivern, of the Kansas Department of Administration, said Friday that judicial branch leaders and state building administrators intend to ask the 2016 Legislature for an appropriation to begin addressing maintenance shortcomings at the Kansas Judicial Center.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/1MnPT1m) reports that McGivern says the $70,000 that the Kansas Legislature allots annually for upkeep isn’t enough to address the problems at the building. He says that without the work, the 37-year-old building risks becoming as poorly maintained as the Docking State Office Building, which is slated for demolition.
