The saga surrounding the Phoenix Coyotes continues to plod along.
Soni Munshi of the Arizona Republic hears from Elaine Scruggs about how they’re exploring different budget scenarios and and one of them sees Glendale not having to make cuts if the team leaves.
“I don’t want to turn off the lights in Glendale,”Scruggs said, suggesting the hockey and concert arena could attract other events that would keep visitors at Westgate City Center, the nearby shopping and restaurant complex.
Munshi’s story shows off four different scenarios, two with the team leaving and two with them going, so feel free to scope them out.
Of course, other members of the government have differing opinions on what’s best for the financially struggling city.
What Scruggs appears to be worried about is losing other municipal functions in favor of keeping the hockey team. In other words, it’s the same debate that’s raged on since the team went into bankruptcy.
