PRINCETON - The debate over merging Princeton Township and Princeton Borough will come to a vote in next week's election.

The heated battle has both sides of the argument pushing to get residents out to cast their decision in the matter.

Those in favor of consolidating the towns say it will lead to cost savings and end an out-of-date model of local government. Opponents say the move could mean layoffs and a change of atmosphere in the downtown area.
