Sindelar, Jirik, Kratochvil reelected to council

By Chuck Kajer

New Prague voters went to the polls in record numbers Tuesday, and they returned Mayor Craig S. Sindelar to office by a surprisingly narrow margin. They also returned Jim Kratochvil and Duane Jirik to the city council for four more years and gave a resounding no to a proposal to spend $3.5 million for a new athletic complex and improvements to Memorial Park.

Voting was steady most of the day, with New Prague's Ward II, which covers the Scott County side of the community, reaching 1,000 voters by 1:30 p.m.
