With an election in May, town officials want residents to suggest possible solutions at the next regular council meeting, Nov. 1. "Maybe you'd like arm-wrestling, or a duel," said Mayor Jack A. Gullo Jr., joking at a recent council meeting. Gullo also announced the results of ballots he sent to the five council members, asking them to rank their top three suggestions for selecting a council member when the vote is tied.
