The Guilderland school district is proposing to use $30,000 to repair the cobblestone schoolhouse on Route 146 in Guilderland Center, to prevent its deterioration. 

A public session Monday night was meant to close out a former burn-pit area at the now-defunct Army depot near Guilderland Center as requiring “no further action.” But two important questions were raised: What if future property owners are not aware of dangers from remaining vapors, and will the federal government cover costs to mitigate “vapor intrusion” if a new structure is built in the area with elevated concentrations?

“Justice!” cried the two-dozen picketers.
