There were mixed results in two area school referendums on Tuesday.
Voters in Guilderland said no to a $42.7 million building project that would have centered on upgrading infrastructure and improving safety at the district's seven buildings.
The difference was by a margin of less than 60 votes.
Some voters, however, said the cost, about $100 for the average homeowner, was too high.
Superintendent Marie Wiles says she's disappointed, but says officials will take the opportunity to re-evaluate priorities. She says they know what people want.
There was success, however, in Ballston Spa, where voters approved the district's $24 million capital plan that allows the school district to continue with renovations to the Malta Ave. Elementary School, the middle school, and the high school
