SANTA YNEZ, Calif. -

The Chumash tribe will pay for more fire and law enforcement in the Santa Ynez Valley.

The annual distribution of funds has been made after a close review by a select committee made up of local leaders and tribal members from the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians.

The funds are part of a state agreement to help the local cities and counties impacted by tribal gaming.

This year, $740,000  will be distributed.

The committee approve spending the money in several areas including,  the salary for a full time Santa Barbara County firefighter-paramedic, a Sheriff’s deputy salary, and a traffic safety officer.
