The Phoenix City Council approved a deal Wednesday afternoon to renovate Talking Stick Resort Arena, the home of the Phoenix Suns.

The measure to spend $150 million on updates and renovations to the downtown, city-owned arena passed 6-2. Mayor Thelda Williams and Councilmembers Debra Stark, Laura Pastor, Felicita Mendoza, Vania Guevara and Michael Nowakowski voted in favor of the deal, while Vice Mayor Jim Waring and Councilmember Sal DiCiccio voted against it.

For more than a month, City Manager Ed Zuercher, Community and Economic Development Director Christine Mackay and Suns’ CEO Jason Rowley have been trying to sell councilmembers and the general public on the deal.
