The lingering legal conflict between Baker City Mayor Richard Langrell and the city appears to be on the verge of escalating.

And a court battle might be on the horizon.

An April 1 letter from Langrell’s attorney to the city asks for more than $12,000 in reimbursement in connection to an annexation/water fee dispute. Also included in the reimbursement demand is money that Langrell and his wife, Lynne, assert they’ve paid to be part of a rural fire protection district. 

In their initial request in early January, the Langrells asked the city to reimburse them $14,907.
