The Portage City Council will not take further action on a complaint brought by a city employee against Acting City Manager Laurence Shaffer. Shaffer is one of three finalists for the permanent city manager job. The complaint, which became public at a council meeting last night, alleges that Shaffer made an inappropriate remark to the employee at city hall a few weeks ago.
