Repairs to the Ohio Statehouse and the Capitol Square grounds during protests over the last several weeks will cost the Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board — the body responsible for maintaining the Statehouse and Capitol Square — $158,263.57, according to a press release sent to media by the board.

The board noted this amount does not include the expenses incurred by the Ohio State Highway Patrol or costs to repair damage that occurred on other state property.

The CSRAB hired a professional service to clean and remove graffiti from the limestone building and walls, as well as the granite and marble monuments. The broken windows of the Ohio Statehouse have been boarded up since May 29, as the CSRAB collected quotes for repairs to the glass and the wooden millwork of the windows and doors. Exterior damages include pole lights and lanterns, a bench and many of the trash cans.
