PORTAGE (WKZO) -- A group of Portage High School Students, elected by their peers got a chance to tour city facilities yesterday and sit in last night’s city Council meeting, and were even sworn in by the city clerk as an acting council.

They didn’t actually get to vote but they did get to participate and view how the council works.

Government Teacher Rick Searing says it’s a skill set that can be useful back at Portage Northern.

It’s an annual event at Portage City Hall
