(Harrisburg) -- Governor-elect Tom Wolf plans to use his own money to rent office space for state police security officers while they are guarding him at his private residence, where he plans to live as governor. 

Wolf's transition team isn't saying how much he'll pay for the office space.

Spokesman Jeffrey Sheridan is only saying that he'll pay "full market value.'' 

Decades of governors have lived at the governor's official residence along the Susquehanna River in Harrisburg, where there is space for the security team.

But Wolf prefers to live at his residence in Mount Wolf in York County.

He also isn't taking the governor's salary of nearly $191,000 in 2015.

The businessman reported $1.3 million in adjusted gross income in 2013. 

He takes office January 20.
