Pala Tribe gaining support for vote against landfill
Friday, May 21, 2004

The Pala Band of Mission Indians of California is gaining allies for its ballot initiative against a landfill.

The tribe says the Gregory Canyon landfill could contaminate the area's only water source. The landfill is near two sacred sites, Gregory Mountain and Medicine Rock.

A local utility board will meet with the tribe on Monday. The utility director says he will seek a resolution against the landfill.
