Fort Benning prepares for government shutdown

Posted: Updated:

10/1/13 Update:

A majority of civilian workers at Fort Benning learned Tuesday they were being furloughed. For updates on that story, please visit us here.


Original 9/30/13 story:

   Without a last-minute deal in Congress, the federal government will shut down at midnight.  A release from Fort Benning states that many of the post's civilian employees will face a temporary furlough.

   Even if there should be a shutdown, all military and civilian personnel should report to work on Tuesday, October 1.  The post says at that time they will receive guidance from their supervisors.

   In the event of a furlough, all essential services will continue: law enforcement, medical and dental facilities, schools, childcare facilities and emergency services.

   Fort Benning schools will remain open.  The Post Exchange, convenience stores and MWR services will also remain open.  The commissary is also scheduled to be open as usual on Tuesday.

   The Fort Benning website will be updated with official information as soon as it becomes available.
