City councillors in the district of Prague 10 have killed a controversial plan by the previous administration for a new City Hall building which would cost the district 775 million crowns. In the autumn, councillors will look into new possibilities. The former plan for a new administrative building drew sharp protests from some locals, who held demonstrations and signed a petition. A local referendum was also held on the issue last year, but not enough residents took part for the results to be binding.
