VOORHEESVILLE — In the midst of a snowstorm Tuesday that canceled after-school events, 183 district residents cast votes on a $2.7 million bond project, which passed 131 to 52.
In close votes on Oct. 14, a $17.3 million project to update Guilderland’s seven school buildings passed while an $846,300 plan to renovate the high school auditorium and better light the football field was defeated.
Voorheesville School District residents will vote on Dec. 17 whether or not to pay for a new high school roof and upgraded technology.
A courageous citizen was criticized when she spoke out after the fire district held a vote on a $3.9 million project that wasn't publicized as the law requires. A re-vote should be held.
Linda Chaffee wrote a letter to the Enterprise editor on Sept. 5, declaring that she thought the $3.9 million bond project vote was “probably” legal, but that it was “possibly not” ethical.
