Renovation work not approved at GRU home

Posted: Updated:

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - A spokesman for the Georgia Board of Regents says the board has not approved any renovation work done at the president's home at Georgia Regents University in several years.

The Augusta Chronicle reports questions arose about work at the home of President Ricardo Azziz when it was revealed last week that university officials were planning to add a carport costing at least $75,000. Board of Regents policy says projects other than routine and necessary maintenance should be approved by the chancellor and board.

The newspaper used an open records request to find out that roofs have been replaced, exterior walls constructed, heating and air systems replaced and other work done since June 2010 costing about $284,000. Board spokesman John Millsaps said none of the projects were submitted for approval.
