Is the Portage City Council for real? Sounds like Portage has a shoplifter issue. I'm sure all the businesses will just pass the cost onto us or maybe the stores will just close up and move out. Police are here to serve and protect. That means helping out businesses with theft and fraud.

Hey, here's a thought, the City Council should do something about all the Illinois-plated cars and trucks in Portage. They get to use all the city's services and don't pay any excise tax on auto or trucks.
