Unanimous votes on both sides ushered in three-year pact for six Guilderland administrators with a raise the district's negotiator called "modest" — 1.5 percent each year.
Perhaps feeling the pressure of several years of budget cuts, the formerly cohesive Guilderland School board, functioning under new leadership, has been deeply divided on small issues of pay.
After two years of sometimes difficult negotiations, the Guilderland Employees' Association and the school district cleared the hurdle of an impasse to agree on a four-year contract.
The contract between the village and the Voorheesville ambulance squad was approved with a split vote, with the amount in reserves for a roof fund, a new vehicle fund, or a maintenance fund a particular point of contention.
