Police chief hearing is set

Nate Young

BAR HARBOR — Terminated Police Chief Nate Young’s appeal of his firing will be heard before the town council in an open session on Wednesday. The hearing is set to begin in town council chambers in the municipal building at 10 a.m.

Young claims in his one-page appeal notice, written on his behalf by attorney Gregg Frame, that he is being discriminated against and that his rights have been violated by town manager Dana Reed. The town, meanwhile, is prohibited from releasing any details of Young’s dismissal under laws governing personnel matters.

Young was placed on paid administrative leave at the beginning of Oct. 2013.

On Jan. 22, Young was dismissed by Reed.

Young has been with the police department here since 1984. He has been chief since 1991.
