After setting a minimum price of $3 million for the sale of seven town-owned office condominiums at Pantigo Place in East Hampton — or $428,571 per condo — the three members of the East Hampton Town Board’s Republican majority agreed on Tuesday to accept a bid of $1.2 million for four of the condos, a sale price of $300,000 each.
The decision set off a heated discussion, but the debate may well be moot, as the buyer, Andrew Sabin, said yesterday that he had withdrawn his bid.
Dave Martin, an East Hampton Town police officer, was presented with the department’s Officer of the Year award late last month.
Officer Martin responded to a call last February from a young girl whose father had shot her mother with a pellet gun and was holding the family, including a sibling, at knifepoint in a Springs house. After getting the victims safely out of the house, he subdued the man and took him into custody.
