Robert Abbey, Washington, D.C.-based director of the Department of Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM), will speak in Malta, Sept. 16 at 7 p.m. at the Malta High School Gymnasium.
Abbey will be in Malta at the request of the Phillips County Commissioners to address the concerns Phillips and Valley County residents have about the possible designation of a national monument in the area. Recently released BLM internal documents mentioning such a monument have raised alarm in local residents.
Phillips County and Valley County Commissioners encourage everyone to attend this important meeting.
