Condition/Cost of UK Buildings Concern Trustees

The University of Kentucky's board of trustees spent two hours of its retreat Sunday morning touring campus buildings, and pretty soon afterward, a discussion of big ideas sharpened to one big and very expensive issue. "What I learned is that we need three to four times the amount of money (for new construction) as I thought," said C.M. "Bill" Gatton. He later clarified that amount to about $3 billion.
