TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Toilet paper is at the center of the latest battle of Trenton.
Paper products are running low as Mayor Tony Mack's administration and the City Council quarrel over a contract to resupply city government in New Jersey's capital.
Council President Kathy McBride tells The Times of Trenton paper towel and toilet paper dispensers in senior citizen centers, police headquarters, the fire department and other city offices likely won't last through the week.
The council has twice rejected a $42,000 contract for a year's supply of paper products because members raised concerns about a high unit price for hot drink cups.
Mack's administration removed the cups from the contract and sent it back to the council.
Mack has faced frequent criticism and scandal since he took office in 2010.
