Council ousts Langrell as mayor


The Baker City Council has removed Richard Langrell as mayor and elected Councilor Clair Button to replace him.

Councilor Barbara Johnson will replace Button as vice-mayor.

Langrell, who was elected by voters as a councilor in November 2012, was elected by his colleagues as mayor in January 2013.

He will remain as a councilor. His four-year term continues through the end of 2016.

In Baker City's form of government the mayor is largely a ceremonial position, and the mayor has no special authority beyond setting meeting agendas and signing official documents.

The City Council met tonight in a regular meeting.

Button had asked that a discussion of Langrell's performance be added to the agenda.

Langrell this spring filed a lawsuit against the city claiming it owes him more than $9,000 in water and sewer fees he paid for his motel, the Always Welcome Inn.
