(June 17, 2010) A coalition of community groups has questioned whether East Hampton Town can legally put Fort Pond House, a property it owns in Montauk, on the market.
Despite opposition from its Democratic minority, the town board agreed on June 3 to list the property for sale. The resolution was approved in a 3-2 vote by the Republican majority, which insists that selling land must be part of a financial bailout plan in the face of a huge town deficit.
(November 04, 2010) After holding a business summit last Thursday in Montauk, members of the East Hampton Town Board reviewed the discussion there at a work session on Saturday, and mapped its implications for the future.
For Town Supervisor Bill Wilkinson, the meeting underscored a need for a “multi-year economic development plan for East Hampton.”
