BAR HARBOR — Fired police chief Nate Young has until March 28 to file an appeal with Hancock County Superior Court if he is to contest his dismissal from the town. His attorney Gregg Frame said Tuesday that no decisions on an appeal have been made.

Mount Desert Police Chief Jim Willis has been running the department since Nov. 4 and will continue as interim chief until further notice, town manager Dana Reed said Monday. There are no plans to advertise the chief position at this time.

Young was fired by Reed on Jan. 22. On Wednesday, Feb. 26, town councilors heard Young’s appeal of that action in a day-long hearing, and voted 5-2 to uphold Reed’s decision.
