FREEPORT — Port Freeport has expanded its use of eminent domain to secure property in Freeport’s East End, this time trying to obtain city-owned property — and Freeport officials pledge they will fight the action.

Mayor Brooks Bass proclaimed City Council and staff were not going to go down easily after the port began the eminent domain process Tuesday to acquire multiple city-owned lots.
