(KMOV) – St. Louis City is spending $70,000 of taxpayer dollars to fix the floor in a building that is less than three years old.

This is in the new Amtrak/Greyhound station across from the Scottrade Center downtown.

It turns out that the floor could not stand up to the traffic, so it’s being ripped up and replaced with a sturdier product.

The comptroller’s office says the board of public service worked with the architects to design the building and there was no input from the comptroller’s office.

It is not clear if the city may try to recoup some of the expense from the firms that suggested the original floor.
