GUILFORD – After nearly three years, Town of Guilford board members finally arrived at the moment they had been anticipating. Wednesday evening, they broke ground at the Marble Road site where the new garage and hall will soon be built.
“This is quite an occasion. You might not realize it, but this is a result of ten years labor on the part of some of you and there’ll be even more hard work for those on the committee. Soon we will have a new town barn and a new town hall,” said Guilford Town Supervisor Alton B. Doyle after he cut the ribbon at Wednesday’s ground breaking ceremony.
Separate bids had been requested for site construction, general construction, plumbing, HVAC and electrical. Each request included a base bid for a four-bay highway garage plus several alternates. The site construction bid, for example, included alternates for the construction of a retention pond, septic system and sitework and parking for the town hall.
