Commissioner Could Open Meeting To Public Comment On Renaming Proposal

A county commissioner may allow public comment during a meeting to finalize the renaming of the QuikTrip Center.

The Tulsa County Public Facilities Authority is set to meet Thursday at 9:00am. One of the agenda items is an amended Naming Rights and Sponsorship Agreement between the county and Muscogee (Creek) Nation.

The nation moved to purchase the naming rights of the QuikTrip Center, since the current agreement with that company expires January 1st.

According to Expo Square officials, the amended agreement clarifies the sovereign immunity clause between the Nation and the county. Sovereign immunity protects governments and nations from being sued without their knowledge.

The Muscogee (Creek) Nation made a change to the agreement after the county voted last month.

Commissioner and board chairman Fred Perry told KTUL.com that he's not actively seeking comment from the public on the amended agreement, but he may open the floor to take comments from citizens.

Expo Square spokesperson Amanda Blair said this type of transaction does not change the agreement's structure and is not out of the ordinary.
