SHEFFIELD, AL (WAFF) -

Suspended Sheffield Police Chief Greg Ray will have to wait until after Christmas to go before a civil service board. He was supposed to go before the civil service board this week.

Ray's civil service hearing was set for Thursday morning.

His attorney said the hearing has been pushed back until after the holidays. Ray's attorney asked the city to postpone the hearing to give both sides ample amount of time to prepare their cases.

The city suspended Ray back in October saying he violated the rules and regulations of his office, claiming he failed to uphold his responsibilities of the office.

Mayor Sanford suggested the city terminate Ray and gave him an opportunity to resign.  Ray chose not to resign and opted for a public hearing with the civil service board.

A new hearing date has not been set but is expected after the first of the year.
