High estimates delay Guilford building project

GUILFORD – Higher-than-expected cost estimates are delaying construction of the new Guilford town hall and highway garage and forcing planners to re-think the size of the project, a building committee member said last week.

The building committee is also interviewing three candidates to fill a part-time “clerk of the works” position to oversee construction once it starts and act as a liaison to the town board.

Right now the new buildings are carrying around a $2,475,000 price tag, according to town board and building committee member Bruce Winsor, which would put the project $825,000 over budget. Voters only approved $1.65 million.

“We’re going to have to back-up a little bit,” said Winsor. “We’re going to have to consider a lot of options.”
