Supervisors to become managers

It was a unanimous consensus by the New Prague City Council and the Utilities Commission to look at promoting the city’s two supervisors to manager level positions. The decision came during a special Wednesday, Feb. 6, joint meeting of the two groups.

Electric Operations Supervisor Bruce Reimers and Maintenance Supervisor Glen Sticha won’t immediately be promoted. There will be research into the proposal, including which employees might need to be shifted or hired due to the change.

The city’s Public Works Director Dennis Seurer retired October 31, 2012. The city decided now would be a good time to examine the organization of the Public Works Department and consider changes.
