Joint B/CS Council Meeting Set for Great Landfill Debate

Will August 25 bring about a resolution to trash talk in the Twin Cities?

That Monday is the day both Bryan and College Station's city councils will come together to try and work out the great landfill debate.

Bryan has filed a lawsuit against College Station, with Bryan claiming they haven't been allowed to make decision about the Brazos Valley Solid Waste Management Agency.

College Station says they have never prevented their co-owners of the agency from being a part of decisions.

On August 25, only the elected officials will meet as they try to find common ground. City staff, including the city managers and city attorneys, will not be in attendance, according to Mayor Ben White last week, who says he hopes the meeting will be able to facilitate discussion and find a path to a solution.

The current landfill on Rock Prairie Road is nearing capacity, and property in Grimes County will be home to a new landfill. However, bids on the construction contract for the new Twin Oaks site have been delayed as a result of the suit.
