SELMA, N.C. (AP) -

Members of Selma's Town Council have decided against some belt-tightening measures and are putting the issue behind them for now.

The town attorney thought it might be unconstitutional. Selma Mayor Cheryl Oliver said there are technical issues, such as where is a person's waist.
