MOUNT VERNON — It may be February before a decision is rendered by the arbitrator in the Charles “Russ” Adams discipline case.

According to city Safety-Service Director Joel Daniels, after about five and half hours of testimony from both sides Tuesday, the arbitrator from the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service instructed both sides to submit a brief on the situation by Jan. 7. He will then have 30 days after that to issue his decision.
