Glendale may open casino talks with Tohono O’odham Nation — Arizona Republic
A slate of West Valley residents and leaders recently lobbied the Glendale City Council to start talks with the Tohono O’odham Nation, which hopes to build a casino near the sports and entertainment district.
Today, the council is expected to decide which way to go: continue with firm opposition or open dialogue and begin to thaw relations.
The council, in a non-voting workshop, will review the status of the dispute, which has so far cost the city nearly $3.5 million in consulting and legal fees.
Council members could then vote at the next meeting on whether to initiate talks, Councilman Gary Sherwood said.
