Mayor Robert Romano on Monday met with representatives from the Ewing-based Amelio Solar to discuss a possible plan for bringing a "large-scale" manufacturing facility and, with it, between 130 and 175 jobs here, according to Walker Wright, the company's director of government relations.

Romano stated Tuesday he plans to schedule a second meeting with the solar panel manufacturer.
