Elko, Nev. – The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will meet with the Northeastern Great Basin Resource Advisory Council (RAC) at 9 a.m., Thursday, Oct. 16, at the Elko District Office, 3900 E. Idaho St., Elko, NV.
The RAC advises and makes recommendations to the BLM on public land management. Agenda items will include, but are not limited to, the Standards and Guidelines for grazing and wild horses and a working session on the RAC’s wild horse and burro program recommendation. The meetings are open to the public and provide the public an opportunity to make comments to the citizen-based council. A public comment period is scheduled at 10:30 a.m. The public is encouraged to attend and provide comment. Written comments can also be submitted to the RAC Coordinator, Chris Rose, at the Nevada State Office, 1340 Financial Blvd, Reno, NV 89502. The agenda is available online at http://on.doi.gov/YVOc5j.
The Federal Land Policy and Management Act directs the Secretary of the Interior to involve the public in planning and discussion of issues related to management of BLM-administered public lands. The Northeastern Great Basin RAC is one of three such councils in Nevada that accommodate this community participation directive. Represented on the council are commercial and non-commercial users including environmental, livestock, mining, Native American, and wild horse and burro interests and elected officials and state agencies.
