KINGMAN - The Bureau of Land Management has named Timothy J. Burke as the new district manager for the Arizona Strip District, which covers 2.8 million acres north of the Grand Canyon in northwestern Arizona.

"This is a dream job for me," Burke stated in a release.

The Grand Canyon isolates the Arizona Strip from the rest of Arizona, making it among the most remote and rugged public land in the lower 48 states.

There are approximately 4,000 miles of unpaved roads in the district, according to the BLM.

Burke begins work as Arizona Strip district manager in about a week.

Ray Suazo, BLM Arizona State Director, appointed Burke to the position after Scott Florence retired earlier this year.

"Tim is a veteran land manager who has demonstrated the ability to deal with challenging issues," Suazo stated in a release.

The Arizona Strip District has about 60 employees, according to BLM.

Originally from California, Burke managed the Alturas Field Office there for the past 16 years, and was acting manager of the Surprise Field Office the past two years.

Burke has worked for the BLM since 1979 and also held positions in Utah, Nevada, New Mexico and Central California before going to the Alturas Field Office.
