FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) - The city council in Ferguson, Missouri, has postponed a meeting scheduled for Tuesday, citing a need for a larger venue due to interest from residents following the death of Michael Brown.

A new date and place has not been set. It would have been the first council meeting since Brown was shot and killed by a Ferguson police officer on Aug. 9, spurring several nights of unrest.

The city says in a statement that the decision to postpone was made after consultation with police agencies.

In the meantime, city leaders say the mayor and council in the coming days will be requesting resident input through postage paid comment cards that will be delivered to every home in Ferguson, and through an online forum.
