Pala Band's anti-landfill measure placed on ballot


The San Diego County Board of Supervisors has placed the Pala Band's initiative against a proposed landfill on the November ballot.

The tribe says the landfill will harm the environment and contaminate San Luis Rey River. If built, it would be located near two sacred sites in Gregory Canyon near the reservation.

The landfill was previously approved by voters in 1994 but the tribe says voters were misled about its potential impact.
