Changes are coming to the i-Wireless Center in Moline as Governor Quinn was in town announcing a $4-million grant for improvements.

"It's a 20-year-old building," said Scott Mullen. "It's not getting any newer."
     
The i-Wireless Center will be undergoing renovations soon. Renovations, it's director calls long overdue.
  
"We've been making trips down to Springfield for several years trying to encourage our reps to get us some money," said Mullen, i-Wireless Center Executive Director. "It's just great to see that the Governor finally made it happen"

The facility will get several new upgrades. 

"Our biggest project is going to be to replace all the lower ball seating as they are past their life expectancy," said Mullen. "We're also going to try to expand the concourse. The Mallards will have brand new glass that will be much clear for the fans to through."
        
And its all an effort Governor Pat Quinn says will keep visitors coming back to the Quad Cities.
 
"We want to make sure that we keep it modern, accessible, available, for families all across Western Illinois, Iowa, you name it," said Quinn.
