Ferguson names new interim city manager
FERGUSON (AP) - The city of Ferguson has a new interim city manager.
The city council named Matt Unrein to the position Tuesday. He was previously the public works director and will continue at his current salary of $90,000 while the city seeks a permanent city manager.
Unrein replaces interim manager Pam Hylton, who was taking a job with Richmond Heights.
City Manager John Shaw was among several city officials who resigned in March following a scathing report by the U.S. Department of Justice over racial profiling among police and a profit-driven municipal court system. The report was spurred by the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
Darren Wilson, who shot Brown, was cleared of wrongdoing by the Justice Department and a St. Louis County grand jury.
