The landfill dispute between Bryan and College Station may not be over after all.

A day after the two sides announced the signing of a seven-page settlement, Bryan is clarifying that there are still unresolved issues. Among those, the rewriting of the interlocal agreement, approval of a methane to electric contract for BTU and defining College Station's day-to-day control over the landfill.

Bryan officials say while Monday's agreement is a great start, there is still progress to be made. "We have our work cut out for us," said David Watkins, Bryan City Manager. "I think Bryan, and I know College Station, are both ready to roll up their shirt sleeves and go the final 285 yards and get this thing done."

Bryan has withdrawn its request for a temporary injunction, but its lawsuit against College Station still stands. The two sides have a November 1 deadline to resolve the remaining issues or face more mediation.
