A few residents have discussed gathering signatures in order to force a public vote on the bond that could be up to $2.75 million for building upgrades.
The school district's business leader hopes that, by the time Guilderland gets serial bonds for its capital project "Moody will have noticed we've built back up our reserves."
The borrowing limit discussed by the town board so far is $2.8 million, for a project that includes bringing the town court back into the same building as the town hall.
A split vote on the town board left hanging a bid offer for fixing a set of buildings long in need of repair. Now, the board will seek the services of an engineering firm in order to assess the cost of replacement.
Detailed plans haven't been drawn up yet, but David Messercola, chairman of the board of fire commissioners, expects construction will begin next summer.
