No more kumbaya. The East Hampton Town Board is evicting the Country School preschool and summer day camp at the Waiscott airport property after the school failed to negotiate a new lease with the town, 27East reported. The facility has operated there 18 years. The founder of the school, Deena Zenger, told the paper that her original lease from the late 1990s was never renewed, and that even though the initial terms would have allowed her to buy the property, the town ruled last week that she cannot do so. She will be challenging the eviction in court, she said. The school pays $3,000 per year under the lease agreement. That’s far less than what newer tenants are paying. When Hertz car rental company renewed last year, its rent leapt from $7,000 per year to more than $100,000. [27E]
