Eighty-five federal jobs will be relocated to Colorado as the U.S. Bureau of Land Management moves its headquarters to Grand Junction, Colo., from Washington, D.C., so more agency’s administrators will be closer to acreage they regulate. Joseph R. Balash, U.S. assistant interior secretary, confirmed the move in a letter July 16 to interior and environment subcommittee of U.S. Senate’s appropriations committee. Twenty-seven BLM employees will relocate to Grand Junction, and 58 will move to an existing BLM office in Lakewood. Balash said 164 other BLM employees will move to state offices across the West in a reorganization of the agency. Officials hope to complete the move by late 2020. A majority of the agency’s 9,500 employees already work in the field.
