BAR HARBOR — A tour boat operator who was denied use of the town dock for a new ferry service gained no traction with the board of appeals Tuesday.
Without getting into the merits of the case, the board moved 4-1 not to accept Andrew Keblinsky’s appeal because it was filed four days late. Paul Devore was the only dissenting vote, arguing that extenuating circumstances, as presented by Mr. Keblinsky, should be taken into account. Donald Bell, Mike Siklosi, Roger Samuel and board chairman Ellen Dohmen all voted not to accept the appeal.
“The burden was on Mr. Keblinsky, unfortunately, to do this within 30 days and he did not,” Mr. Siklosi said.
