Residents of the Bridgehampton Fire District easily approved a bond allowing the district to purchase property adjacent to its firehouse for $3.9 million.
The vote was 138-20.
Once purchased, the property now owned by Pulver Gas would continue to be leased by the company for two years. During that time, the fire district would draw up plans for a firehouse expansion, officials said.
"We have just outgrown the space," said Charles Buttler, the district secretary.
