Pulver Purchase Passes Handily in Bridgehampton

Bridgehampton Fire District voters approved the adjacent to the 138-20 on Tuesday night.

Steve Halsey, the chairman of the Board of Fire Commissioners, said after the results were announced that it's a "win-win" and he thanked the voters for their support.

Now that the referendum has passed, the fire district will take out a 15-year bond. With a 3.5 percent interest rate, the cost to the taxpayers will be $25.69 per year per $1 million in assessed value.

The specific use for the property on Montauk Highway is not set in stone, but Halsey previously said Pulver Gas would maintain occupancy until the completion of its two-year lease, so there would be time to plan for the parcel’s future.
