The Burlington City Council will not pursue an independent investigation into a clash between police and protesters this summer.
A peaceful protest involving hundreds at an energy conference turned violent when a small group of about 15 refused to let buses leave. It sparked a confrontation with police. Officers ended up firing pepper balls at protesters.
A report by the Burlington police commission found no wrong-doing by the department or its officers.
Some on the council had called for a review by an independent agency, but that measure failed Monday night by a vote of 9-4.
