Audit cites errors in Guilford's town hall project

GUILFORD – An audit conducted by the New York State Comptroller’s office concluded that the Guilford town board did not provide sufficient oversight over the town hall building project.

According to the audit report, the amount spent on the project was $554,000 more than the approved amount of $1.65 million.
