Council discusses 2014 budget


The New Prague City Council held its first workshop on its 2014 general fund budget, which is estimated at $4.3 million. During the Wednesday, Oct. 16, meeting the council discussed increased Local Government Aid and heard from Police Chief Mark Vosejpka and Public Works Manager Glen Sticha about their departments' budgets. The council also discussed two possible options for the New Prague Area Community Pool, either refurbishing the present one or building a new one.
The workshop was the first of series of meetings. The budgets of the Planning and Fire departments will likely be covered at the next workshop, which the council will set the date of at its Monday, Oct. 21, meeting.
