Ferguson Commission to meet for 16th time as report deadline draws nearer

Posted: Updated:

FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) – The Ferguson Commission will meet for the 16th time Monday as the deadline to give recommendations to Gov. Jay Nixon draws nearer.

The commission will make its first report to Gov. Nixon on its progress in three weeks.

The panel has been working to find solutions to the social and economic problems that led to last year’s unrest in Ferguson.

During Monday night’s meeting, commissioners are expected to review additional calls to action.

During their meeting two weeks ago, the commission affirmed the signature calls to action that will serve as the core of the report. There are currently 44 signature calls, with the full list totaling 200. The calls include racial equality, police reform, court reform, education and employment.

On Monday night, commissioners will receive an update on the final report and discuss the focus of the commissions’ work after the report is delivered.

Monday night’s meeting is open to the public and will take place at 5:30 p.m. at the Creve Coeur Government Center.
