The Governor's Housing Committee met Monday in Boise to take testimony on what the public thinks should be done about the Simplot mansion that was donated to the state for use as a governor's home, but has not been used by any governor since its donation in 2004, according to an Associated Press story in the Idaho Press-Tribune.

While only a handful of people offered their opinions on what the state should do with the home, the sentiment was that it is costing the state too much to maintain it, so something should be done with it to relieve state taxpayers of maintaining the 7,100-foot structure.

According to the committee, so far in 2012 the home has cost the state $177,400 to maintain.
