BLM selects Geographic Sciences Branch Chief, Chief Cadastral Surveyor for Nevada

Mike Harmening has been announced as the Geographic Sciences Branch Chief, Chief Cadastral Surveyor for Nevada, officially effective Monday, November 3rd, 2014. He will report for the position on Monday, October 20, 2014.

The announcement by BLM states that Mike brings tremendous knowledge and experience in Cadastral; Records Legacy; GIS; and Title Records. He, too, has an extensive background in Native Corporation allotments/surveys and the legal processes that can surround them.

The Nevada Cadastral Chief has, and continues to be, asked for survey/boundary/title/status expert testimony in Department of Justice litigation. Mike is quite aware of the Authority this position possesses and the importance it holds to facilitate BLM actions.

BLM records have been an item of contention over the last few years in regards to accuracy, availability, and accessibility. BLM Nevada has for several years now, taken a leading role in the creation, maintenance, security, accessibility, and archiving of official federal records. Mike's background in records administration will be an asset to Nevada's Records Legacy.
