A surveyor with the state Department of Transportation is the first state official to take a job with the Oklahoma Department of Land and Natural Resources.
State Transportation Commissioner Greg Harnell said he was excited to be a part of the state’s land survey and surveyor program, which is designed to improve safety and security for people and property in Oklahoma.
Harnell, who also works as an engineer and engineering consultant, said the new job allows him to serve in a new role, which he hopes will bring the department a new level of professionalism and transparency.
The state is currently conducting a survey of the Oklahoman’s land to determine how best to better manage and protect the land for future generations.
State and local officials are working together to find a solution for the survey and safety issue, Harnll said.
The survey is expected to be completed by the end of next year.
The Oklahoma surveyor was chosen for his dedication to land management, Hernell said.
He is known for his safety and dedication to safety.
The Oklahoms land survey is one of the most popular jobs in the state, with a total of over 1,600 positions filled, according to Harnes department.
It is one the most prestigious jobs in state government.
“We’ve got to look at this and say, ‘What are we going to do?'”
Harnells department director said.
“If you can come in and do this job, you’re going to be great.”
Oklahoma has about 1,200 surveyors.
State Transportation Secretary Chris Gaffney said the department has been searching for a new land surveyer for over a year.
“It’s been an ongoing search, and we’re happy to announce today that we’ve selected a new Land Surveyor,” Gaffey said.
Hernell, a graduate of the Oklahoma School of Mines, is the third Oklahoma land surveyee to be hired by the state department.
A total of 865 surveyors are working for the department, and the department plans to hire around 50 more surveyors over the next two years.
State transportation commissioner Harnel said the land survey will be conducted by a team of state engineers and land survey contractors, as well as the Okahomans own surveyors and private contractors.
The agency has already completed over 200 surveys for the Oklans surveyors, Gaffes office said.
Gaffes said it will take the same training and experience that has been given to surveyors from the federal government to do the survey.
“The training is the same as it’s been in the past, and there will be the same type of standards that we are going to hold people accountable for,” Gaffe said.
