The town of League City is suing a Houston resident, urging her to return seed money the city provided to carry out special events. 

League City is suing Latonia Wilson, doing business as Gulf Coast Public Affairs, in the Galveston County Court on Feb. 19, seeking more than $20,000. 

League City claims they entered into an agreement with Wilson in October 2011. According to the suit, the agreement required Wilson to plan and implement certain special events for which she would be compensated.

League City claims they provided Wilson with $25,000 as seed money which was to be returned after the events were completed.

The city claims however, that Wilson only returned about $3,000 and the rest is outstanding.

According to the complaint, League City is seeking  $22,775 in damages -- the rest of the $25,000 in seed money Wilson has not paid back.

It is being represented by attorney Xochytl D. Greer of the Ross, Banks, May, Cron and Cavin Law Firm.
