BOISE -- A number of local elections were decided by slim margins on Tuesday.

Two proposed bonds in Boise were narrowly defeated. Bob Flowers beat incumbent Craig Telford for the Parma mayor's seat by just four votes. And Herbert Mumford retained his seat as Stanley's Mayor by a single vote.

While those races were all close, none were closer than the race for a city council seat in Glenns Ferry. That election ended in a tie.

Five people were running for 2 seats. Larry Stevenson secured his seat with 176 votes. But, Joyce Ashton and Robert Janousek tied for the second seat with 130 votes each.

The solution? It will all come down to the toss of a coin.

At a special council meeting Thursday at noon, the candidates will flip a coin to decide who wins the second city council seat.
