It is not that the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors could not use the $50,000 from the Yavapai-Apache Nation under the provisions of Proposition 202 gaming revenue, but the Nation cannot tell the board how to spend it, board counsel Dave Hunt said. However, that is what tribal officials tried to do in February. In a letter to the board, tribe officials wrote that they wanted $35,000 to go to the Boys & Girls Club of Central Arizona and $7,500 each to two Verde Valley schools.
