A lengthy disagreement over trash has cost the Twin Cities plenty of cash.

The legal dispute over the Brazos Valley Solid Waste Management Agency landfill operations has cost the city of College Station roughly $55,000 in legal fees. The city of Bryan has spent approximately $8,000.

The legal money meter started turning in July when Bryan filed a lawsuit against College Station claiming it was getting shut out of operations at the landfill, which is owned by both cities.

Both sides go back to the bank again when they were ordered to undergo mediation. Although mediation led the two cities to a compromise agreement announced Monday, Bryan's lawsuit still stands.

Bryan and College Station must settle their remaining differences by November 1 or face more mediation, and more legal bills.
