A dispute between Trenton, N.J. Mayor Tony Mack and the city council could lead to municipal buildings running out of toilet paper, Bloomberg reports.

Mack and the council are debating a $42,573 contract for paper goods. The council won't sign off on it due to the $4,000 dollars worth of paper cups Mack included in the contract. The lawmakers say that's too much money to spend on cups. They also believe the mayor should have solicited bids from local companies.

Mack said in a statement that city hall has enough toilet paper to last through Friday, but other city buildings could exhaust their supplies even sooner.
