WILLIAMS TWP, Pa. -

The legal drama surrounding a Northampton County landfill is heating up once again.

Chrin Landfill has announced that it's going to file a lawsuit against Williams Township.

Chrin says the township is in breach of an agreement that was reached in 2009, so landfill officials says it will stop paying community fees--effective immediately.

The township says if it doesn't get that money from the landfill, there will be "a  dramatic tax increase."

Chrin says one of the ways the township breached the agreement was by attempting to collect years of back taxes that the township says it's owed.

But Chrin says it entered an agreement years ago to pay a monthly fee in lieu of the tax.
