Progress Being Made in Twin Cities' Talks over Landfill Dispute

Is there an end in sight to the great trash debate in the Twin Cities? Both cities' mayors seem to think so.

Tuesday night, Bryan's city council will meet in closed session to discuss litigation they've filed against College Station, all over the Brazos Valley Solid Waste Management Agency.

However, Tuesday morning, Bryan Mayor Mark Conlee told News 3 the two cities have made very good progress in their discussions since Bryan filed paperwork in court asking for an injunction.

Conlee could not discuss the matter in depth, but said positive discussions are taking place.

"Optimistic" is the word College Station Mayor Ben White used when News 3 talked to him in Mississippi late Tuesday morning. He said he thinks a court battle is avoidable based on what he's been briefed on.

Bryan alleges College Station has not allowed Bryan in on key decisions of the landfill agency they co-own. You can read the papers filed in district court and College Station's response by clicking on the documents listed above this story.
