A new development with the Coyotes
The city of Glendale has disqualified a ballot measure aimed at blocking a proposed sales tax increase.
Glendale disqualified the measure Wednesday, arguing ballot and petition language was misleading to voters. In addition, the city said there were other technical problems with the ballot measure and its campaign committee.
Keeping the sales tax measure off the November ballot could be a boost to the city’s 20-year deal with prospective Phoenix Coyotes buyer Greg Jamison.
Voiding the sales tax would have made it harder for Glendale to pay for the arena deal with Jamison.
Eklund tweeted this development is a negative for the team staying in AZ. Everyone is attacking him on twitter for that tweet.
Terry Bross of Lagardere Unlimited, the group representing Doan, said Wednesday that 16 NHL teams have made inquiries about Doan's intentions and "four or five" have already submitted formal offers. Bross also has been negotiating with the Coyotes to keep Doan in Phoenix.
"We are getting to the point where it is going to be decision-making time," Bross said.
