GUILFORD – On Nov. 7, the citizens of the town of Guilford and Mt. Upton voted against the town’s building proposition, 364 to 280. This was the second revision of an original project put together this past April. That original measure was defeated by a vote of 247 to 105.
“I’m disappointed. I understand people’s needs, but we have to do something. The (current) building is falling in,” said committee member Bruce Winsor Wednesday.
The town now has to make the current building last through the winter. Repairs to the current town hall and highway garage could be costly, said Winsor. The cost of upkeep and inflation could run the Guilford taxpayers nearly a million dollars if the town decides the building is in dire need. “To do anything with this one will cost us,” said Winsor.
