SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The County Board of Supervisors is offering to help the City of San Diego pay for a new stadium for the Chargers.

Supervisor Ron Roberts said if the city needs a bridge loan to help finance a new venue, county money could be made available without a public vote.

Roberts also said land development and leases could create huge property tax revenues for the city and county.

Roberts explained that he would support building a stadium downtown, but thinks Mission Valley makes more sense.
