Heated debate tonight at workshop
At a workshop Tuesday evening, City Council members had a heated debate about the proposed $320 million arena-management agreement with Coyotes suitor Greg Jamison. Ultimately, they decided to vote on the pact next week.
However, the interim city manager who helped renegotiate the pact said he would not recommend that city leaders approve it. Also, one council member did not say how she would vote on the deal.
If the council rejects the deal, the fate of the arena and the Coyotes may be decided by a new lineup of City Council members who take office Jan.15. Based on statements made during the campaign, a majority of the new council would likely oppose the Jamison deal.
On Tuesday night, Jamison said he is still prepared to buy the team.
Nice to see Jamison still wanting/waiting to purchase team. Still lots of uncertainty over the deal.
And GWI apparently still wants its issues (gift clause) studied.
But you'd have to think the league will set a "firm" deadline on getting an agreement if it spills over into the new administration to complete the transaction or relocation will happen.
