The city has gone to the kids


Several fourth graders took on the roles of the mayor and city council members, while other children took on the role of residents. The residents had the opportunity to share their opinions about having an open or organized waste hauling system, and the council took a vote. The first group of fourth graders voted four to two for an open system, but the other two groups passed an organized system with six to one and five to two votes. The results of the children’s votes will be presented to the real city council at an upcoming meeting when the trash hauling system is discussed.

One firefighter showed the students how he could use a special tool to pry open any door in the city in the event of a fire. The students also saw what an infrared camera looks like when it detects heat and learned that a firefighter needs to get his or her gear on in one minute or less in order to be prepared to fight a fire.

On May 18, fourth graders from Garlough Environmental Magnet School took over West St. Paul City Hall.
