Description

Illinois state signed a contract with PWS Environmental for more than $500,000 to pressure-wash the exteriors of state-owned buildings. Most of the work was done for the Department of Transportation. Projects included office buildings, trucks and even cleaning and sealing a salt barn that had never held salt, and had already been cleaned and sealed a few months earlier. The owner of PWS was revealed to be the brother-in-law of the then-IDOT finance and administration officer.
