Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians to open gas station in June

The Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians in California expects to complete construction of a new gas station in June.

The Chumash Service Station includes 10 gas pumps, a 2,500-square-foot convenience store and a car wash. It will replace an older station across the street.

The tribe bought the 1.14-acre site in 2006, The Solvang Valley News reported. The land is not in trust.

In related news, tribal members re-elected Chairman Vincent Armenta and all other incumbents on the council.
