Duplicating labels within a cached map service

I have created a cached tile service that has 16 different scale levels. At certain levels I noticed label duplications. For example when you zoom to a city level the city polygon has it's name duplicated two to three times. Is there away to avoid this duplication without having to convert each label to an annotation?

Thank you for your help!

Mapping Center Answer:

You can convert the city polygon to point, and this will solve the problem. Use the polygons to symbolize the city area and the city points to label the cities.
