Events within its jurisdiction . . . all at no cost, expense or liability to the NFL or the two participating NFL Clubs (the “Teams”) and that neither the NFL, the Teams, nor any director, shareholder, officer, agent, employee or other representative of the NFL or the Teams shall be held accountable for or incur any financial responsibility or liability of any kind or nature whatsoever in connection with the governmental services and support planned and/or provided by the City relating to Super Bowl XLVI and related Official Events . . ."

In other business, the council voted 20-8 for a resolution instructing the county auditor to withhold the pay of Coroner Kenneth Ackles until such time as he completes the state coroner's examination as mandated by state law. Ackles has completed 7 out of 10 parts of the state examination. He has two more attempts to pass the 3 remaining parts of the exam. Opponents contend the state law violates Ackles' constitutional rights and another state statute pertaining to the compensation of elected officials.
