East Hampton Town

Airport Parking

With the institution in the coming days of paid parking at East Hampton Airport, Hertz and Enterprise, the car rental companies based at the airport, have agreed to lease the spaces they need.

The public will be charged $10 a day to park there once the installation of meters is complete. A free, short-term lot will be available for stops of up to half an hour.

The car rental companies have agreed to pay $2,000 a year for each parking space they occupy. Hertz will pay $60,000 annually for 30 cars, as well as 10 percent of its gross revenue. Enterprise will pay $40,000 annually for 20 parking spaces. Both agreements call for increases in 2018 and 2019.


C.P.F. Purchases

After hearings last Thursday, the East Hampton Town Board voted to move ahead with two land purchases using the community preservation fund.

A half-acre at 46 Oyster Shores Road near Three Mile Harbor in East Hampton, from Sasarmy, L.L.C., for $1.05 million, and a lot at 15 South Fenmore Avenue in Montauk, just shy of an acre, for $400,000, from the Edward R. Miller Revocable Trust, will be preserved for open space.

Also last week, following a public hearing, the board approved a law outlining energy efficiency standards for swimming pools
