CULLMAN COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

The small Cullman County town of Colony may have to wait at least another 60 days before finding out who will be the next mayor.

The two candidates in the race to replace current Colony Mayor Morris Fitts ended up with an exact tie in Tuesday night's runoff election. Candidates Patrick Ward and Donnis Leeth each had 64 votes in the runoff.

Mayor Fitts says the city council will have 60 days to decide who will be the next mayor, but he says he thinks the council will be deadlocked. If the council can't decide, it will go before Governor Bentley, who will have another 30 days to choose.

Mayor Fitts says if Bentley doesn't decide, there could be another election held in January.
