Albany- The Civic Center's promotions and marketing manager was recently suspended over negotiations involving the purchase of equipment for the arena football team.

Tony Ford says he saved the city money and appealed the suspension in a hearing Wednesday. He negotiated a buying price for the field equipment down from more than $131,000 to more than $72,000.

Civic Center Director Matty Goddard suspended him for a week in early December for failing to follow procedures when negotiating the deal. However, the city has purchased the equipment since Ford's suspension.

The city manager has 10 days to make the decision.
