High school students learn about local government

Dozens of students from local high schools took part in the 65th Annual Teen City Government Day on Wednesday.

The 84 students, who are all high-performing and award winners at their respective schools, met with City officials and visited the different City departments to learn about how local government operates, including the City Manager's Office, Recreation and Parks Department, the Traffic Operations Center and the Bakersfield Police Department.

Some will also return for this evening's City Council meeting at 5:15 p.m. and be paired up with a Councilmember or City Staffer.
