Mayor and Chargers hold secret meeting

Posted: Updated:
SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - On Friday it became known that Mayor Kevin Faulconer, Supervisor Ron Roberts and Chargers owner Dean Spanos met in a secret meeting on Thursday regarding a new Chargers Stadium.

The meeting took place Thursday morning, but the mayor's office would not confirm exactly what the meeting was about or what was addressed during the meeting.

A mayor's spokesperson in a statement said, "It was a productive and positive meeting. We look forward to beginning formal discussions with our respective negotiating teams shortly after the citizens' stadium advisory group releases its final recommendations in two weeks."

The mayor's stadium advisory committee still has until May 20th to present a new proposal to try and keep the Chargers here in San Diego which would include financing options.

Last month, an NFL executive visited San Diego and said if the city wants the Chargers to stay, then the city needs to act fast, and get on the same page as the team.

CBS News 8 reached out to the Chargers and their attorney Mark Fabiani, but they did not want to comment, and instead said to contact the mayor's office.
