BLM Opens New Field Station in Barrow
On Dec. 20, 2006, Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne announced the appointment of Ben Nageak, Barrow resident and former mayor of the North Slope Borough, as the Bureau of Land Management representative in Barrow, Alaska.
"The establishment of this position fulfills a commitment we made to the people of the North Slope to have a fulltime presence in Barrow," said Secretary Kempthorne.
The BLM currently has a vacancy in its Barrow office. When this vacancy is filled, the office will again serve as the BLM's liaison with local government officials, special interest groups, Alaska Native organizations on the North Slope, state government and other federal agencies.
The office’s primary responsibility is to help the BLM better understand the unique cultural, economic and natural resource issues of Alaska’s North Slope and to coordinate with all interested constituents. The Barrow Field Station is located at 1265 Agvik Street.
