OT not paid to fill Mt. Vernon fire supervisor sick call
As the back and forth between Mount Vernon and its firefighters continue, News 12 has learned a fire supervisor called out sick today but overtime pay was not used to find a replacement.
Instead, a chief at a firehouse 1 ½ miles away was supposed to meet the firefighters at the scene in the event of a fire.
Mayor Ernie Davis alleges that firefighters are abusing their sick time.
