The saga to keep the Coyotes in Glendale took another twist Friday.
According to an online Arizona Republic report, a state investigation has been launched into “possible violations of Arizona’s Open Meeting Law by the Glendale City Council” in connection to meetings that took place between city council, the National Hockey League and perspective buyers of the Coyotes on May 28.
Here is a snippet of what
The Attorney General’s Office launched the investigation in response to several complaints, according to a July 2 letter by Assistant Attorney General Christopher Munns to interim City Manager Dick Bowers.
This is the latest chapter in the economically controversial story of the Coyotes in Glendale.
Earlier this month, Glendale City Council narrowly approved Renaissance Sports & Entertainment’s 15-year, $225 million lease agreement for Jobing.com Arena.
