The Milpitas City Council is expected to take action Tuesday after fielding dozens of complaints about a stinky odor that's bothering some residents.

Some think the stench is coming from the Newby Island landfill.

The city council says it has received 72 odor complaints in less than a month.

Members plan to update the council's odor control report Tuesday night.

They're trying to iron things out before Milpitas residents vote on a ballot measure in November that will decide whether to double the landfill in size because it's near capacity at this time..
