A former city of San Diego administrator did not disclose a $1,500 travel reimbursement from a private company for an April 2008 trip to India as part of a failed bid to manage landfills in Mumbai.
What’s At Stake
No comprehensive accounting of the Indian landfill deals exists. City leaders have blamed the former administrator, Elmer Heap, for not revealing the extent of his contact with an Indian company and he isn’t talking.
Heap’s travel reimbursements add to the questions surrounding the strange tale of how the city nearly became a landfill investor halfway across the globe.
