BLM employees face Thursday deadline on relocation decision

Local News

WASHINGTON– Bureau of Land Management employees have a Thursday deadline to tell the agency whether they plan to relocate from Washington to new locations out west, including Grand Junction.

More the two dozen positions will be in Grand Junction at the BLM’s new headquarters.

The move will disperse about 300 Washington-based employees across the west, as part of the Trump Administration’s decision to move bureau headquarters closer to the public land. 99% of BLM land is in 12 western states.
