A dispute between Baker City Mayor Richard Langrell and the city might be settled in court.
On Tuesday Langrell filed a complaint in Baker County Circuit Court demanding the city pay him more than $9,000 in water and sewer fees he and his wife, Lynne, have paid for their motel.
The dispute between the Langrells and the city has continued - in one form or another - for years.
Richard Langrell said Tuesday afternoon that it's time to finish what evolved into a nearly decade-long legal dispute.
"It (the court documents) is just telling the city I'm tired of them running me around and it's time to get it settled," he said.
