FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — The interim city manager in Ferguson is stepping down to work for another city in St. Louis County.
Pam Hylton was assistant city manager before becoming interim city manager in March, following the resignation of John Shaw. She is taking a job as assistant city manager in nearby Richmond Heights. Her last day in Ferguson will be May 15.
Shaw resigned in the fallout of a scathing report by the U.S. Department of Justice alleging racial bias and profiling in Fergusons' police department and a profit-driven municipal court system.
The report was prompted by the unrest that followed the August shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown by officer Darren Wilson. A St. Louis County grand jury and the Justice Department declined to prosecute Wilson, who resigned in November.
