Glendale on Monday formally rejected petitions that sought to put a referendum on the November ballot that would have allowed voters to weigh in the city's Phoenix Coyotes deal.

The city noted the petitions missed the deadline and lacked the required number of signatures and other information.

The two residents spearheading the referendum had submitted signatures last Thursday, which city officials said was three days past the deadline.

They turned in about 1,568 signatures, but the city has said 1,862 signatures is the minimum number required.
