Leaders To Attend Fort Riley Event

KSAL StaffFebruary 6, 2015

Republican Gov. Sam Brownback and Kansas legislators are planning to attend a town hall meeting on the future of Fort Riley.

The meeting on Feb. 9 was called to allow Army officials to hear from the community about how possible troop reductions at Fort Riley would affect them.

Fort Riley employs more than 25,000 people in the Junction City area. In a news release, Fort Riley said as many as 16,000 could be dismissed or redeployed.

The base is one of 30 military installations across the U.S. that could see troop reductions as a result of the federal budget cuts and personnel reductions to the Army.

The forum will be held at the Geary County Convention Center in Junction City.
