At its Dec. 2 workshop, city council heard a report on use policy for the city’s suites at Camelback Ranch Glendale and Gila River Arena. Both venues have been used by non-profit organizations and city workers conducting city business.
The presentation, presented by Communications Director Julie Watters, pointed out the suite was to be used for conducting city business, city council conducting city business, recognition of non-profit and youth organizations, and city volunteers.
The request from Councilmember Gary Sherwood was for council approval of a process and policy regarding suite usage for councilmembers and ticket reservation.
“The city has followed a strict policy regarding suite usage and that policy has always been an administrative policy,” Watters said. “The policy was created based on the city’s mission for use of suites as well as best practices of other cities that also have suites at sporting facilities.”
