GLENDALE, AZ - There's a new chapter in the Phoenix Coyotes saga, this time involving claims over Glendale City Council members.
Glendale City Attorney Nick DiPiazza confirms Attorney General Tom Horne is conducting an investigation over possible violations of open meeting laws.
Accusations DiPiazza claims there is no evidence for. "No city business was conducted during the closed door meetings, they were simply 'meet and greets,'" said DiPiazza.
Reverend Jarrett Maupin couldn't disagree more. He helped mediate a discussion on Tuesday between two concerned Glendale City Council members and the Attorney General. Maupin said the council members provided evidence for the open meeting violations.
"Why the special greeting for this one particular group? Not all the council members agreed to attend the meetings because of the look of impropriety. I think the public wants to know what happened in those meetings," said Maupin.
DiPiazza says this investigation will have no effect on the agreement between the City of Glendale and the managing group keeping the Coyotes at Jobing.com Arena.
ABC15 reached out to the Attorney General's Office, who declined to comment.
