Ferguson City Council adjourns after secretive session

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) – The Ferguson City Council has adjourned after meeting behind closed doors in a roughly 90-minute special session Monday evening.

Councilmembers left the chamber through a side exit without taking questions or providing details of what was discussed.

City spokesman Jeff Small wouldn’t disclose the purpose of the meeting, but he said questions would be welcome during the Q-and-A segment of Tuesday’s regularly scheduled council session.

The secretive meeting was the first time the council has convened since the Justice Department last week issued a report criticizing the city’s police department and municipal court, saying they discriminate against blacks.

In separate findings released the same day, the Justice Department cleared former Ferguson officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of 18 year old Michael Brown.
