Trenton to Make Emergency Purchase of Toilet Paper

Officials in New Jersey’s capital say they’ve resolved a fight over toilet paper.

Trenton’s The Times newspaper reports Mayor Tony Mack’s administration will 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.

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.

Before the $16,000 emergency contract was announced Tuesday, officials said paper towel and toilet paper dispensers were nearly depleted in senior citizen centers, police headquarters, the fire department and other city offices.
