DENVER (AP) - The Denver Board of Ethics has approved plans for the city to fund Mayor Michael Hancock’s trip to watch the Broncos play in the Super Bowl.

The Denver Post reports (https://goo.gl/tQLLEx ) the board decided Friday “there are appropriate and important reasons for the mayor to represent the city of Denver at the Super Bowl,” including promoting the interests of the city to a national audience.

Hancock is paying for his wife’s and daughter’s airfare, while he taps the city’s general fund for his costs.

The Broncos have provided tickets for the mayor’s group to attend Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers in Santa Clara, California.

Hancock’s spokeswoman, Amber Miller, says the use of city money is appropriate because the trip is in line with the mayor’s duties.
