GUILFORD – Knowing trouble comes in threes, officials in the Town of Guilford are banking on the third time being the charm for their twice-defeated building project.
Shot down by voters in April and then again in November, building committee members say further revisions and options for the failed plans – the first estimated at a cost of $2.5 million, with a follow-up scaled back to $1.89 million – calling for a new town hall and highway garage are in the works. They also said that no new date will be scheduled to put the item back on the ballot – at least not until the public’s aversion to the project is fully examined, and possibly remedied.
“The mission is to try to meet with people on the smaller scale, and answer their specific questions,” said committee member and town councilman George Seneck. “There’ still a lot of people who don’t know what’s going on.”
