Newark city employees may have to start carrying a roll of Charmin's to work.
Mayor Cory Booker says the city can no longer afford to buy toilet paper.
Newark is faced with a $70 million budget shortfall and Booker has come up with a slew of cuts to help close the gap.
Booker wants to reduce most city workers to a 4-day work week and close public pools.
The mayor said he favors belt-tightening over tax increases as a way to usher the city out of the red.
Booker was elected to a second term in May after successfully lowering Newark's violent crime rate.
