Local veterans’ home to be upgraded

A Cape Girardeau veterans’ home will be able to do some renovations thanks to new state funding.

On Friday, Governor Jay Nixon signed three bills that would help provide more than $33 million for repair and renovation projects at Missouri’s seven veterans’ homes.

At the Cape Girardeau Veterans’ Home, part of the money will be used to renovate the nurses’ station, kitchenette and restrooms. The nurse call and fire alarm systems, boilers, water heaters, sump pump, hot water circulating pumps, and exterior doors will also be replaced.

Missouri is home to more than 494,000 military veterans.
