Recount set for city council race

A recount for the New Prague City Council race will be held at 10 a.m. Monday, Nov. 15, at the New Prague City Hall, 118 Central Ave. N.

Ballots will be counted by hand for two candidates - Shawn Ryan and Pat Scripture. In the results that were certified by the city at its canvassing meeting Monday, Nov. 8, David Bruzek had 1,515 votes, Ryan 995, Scripture 983 and Andrea Burkhardsmeier 528. Because the margin of victory for the second council seat was less than one-half of one percent, Scripture had the right to ask for a recount.
