Charlottesville officials holding closed-door meeting after deadly Aug. 12 rally
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.- Charlottesville officials are planning to meet behind closed doors to discuss personnel matters in the wake of a deadly white nationalist rally.
Mayor Mike Signer said in a statement posted on Facebook that the City Council decided to hold an emergency closed session with the city manager on Thursday.
Signer said the events on Aug. 12 "raised serious questions about the city's handling of security, communications, and governance."
He said those are questions that the city council should ask "as the ultimate authority over the city manager."
It has been nearly two weeks since the rally, which attracted what's believed to be the largest gathering of white nationalists in at least a decade. One woman was killed when a car plowed into a group of counter-protesters.
