It could be one of the last efforts left to ensure that the Phoenix Coyotes stay in the desert.

The City of Glendale and the Goldwater Institute announced Wednesday that the two parties will meet on Thursday to talk about the Coyotes situation in an open discussion. Goldwater has been willing to meet with the city for weeks, but only in a forum that is open to the media.

The city, according to Goldwater, is now willing to do so with a third party present.

"As you may have heard, Glendale Mayor Scruggs has invited the Goldwater Institute to meet to discuss our concerns with the city of Glendale's plan to issue bonds to help a businessman buy the Phoenix Coyotes," the government watchdog said in a statement.

"To ensure transparency, we have agreed to have a neutral third-party transcript of the conversation made available to the public and members of the press. We are pleased to be meeting with Glendale in this open manner and look forward to sharing the results of the meeting with you."

Goldwater has threatened to sue the City of Glendale, believing its efforts to raise money through the sale of bonds to aid Chicago businessman Matthew Hulsizer's team purchase are in violation of Arizona's constitution.
