Editor's Note: A clarification was made to the second paragraph of this story.
The Wilmington High School project is going to Superior Court after a complaint was filed on behalf of abutter Gerry O'Reilly.
Town officials believe that the appeal may have been filed after the deadline. Town Manager Jeff Hull said it is the town's stance that the deadline was actually November 21. The town officially was served on Thursday, and its attorneys are now looking into whether or not the appeal was filed in time.
"I think the vast majority of the population is disappointed that we have had to jump through these hoops," said Board of Selectmen chairman Mike Newhouse. "We're reviewing the complaint with counsel. Obviously this is something we are on top of and we will review the town's case and proceed accordingly."
Newhouse said he did not want to speculate as to how long the Superior Court process may last, or what the cost increase could be.
Jeffrey Baker, the attorney for O'Reilly, was not immediate available for comment when contacted by Patch.
