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.
