SUNLAND PARK, NM - Sunland Park's city council had scheduled a Friday meeting to select a new mayor, but they've already canceled the meeting.
City leaders said the state's financial takeover is overwhelming city hall.
City council met last night, in a public forum that again included shouting and protests.
It was the first of several meetings they've been able to finish, but the council vote finished in a 3-3 tie for candidates Gerardo Hernandez and Javier Perea.
A new meeting to appoint a mayor has not been rescheduled.
