TRENTON - Officials in New Jersey's capital say they've resolved a fight over toilet paper.
Mayor Tony Mack's administration will reportedly move forward with an emergency purchase of toilet paper and paper towels. Supplies of both dwindled in city buildings while the administration and City Council quarreled over a contract to resupply city government.
Meanwhile, Mack's office announced last night it had accepted donations from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) to provide a six-month supply of toilet paper and Dyson for 15 hand drying units.
The stalemate began last September. The council 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.
