National Guard Facility In Salina To Close
08/23/2013

The Kansas Adjutant General's office says a reduction in federal funding will cause the loss of jobs in Fort Riley and Salina and the closing of a National Guard maintenance facility in Salina.

Sharon Watson, spokeswoman for the adjutant general, says between 97 and 112 of the 182 jobs at maintenance sites in Salina and Fort Riley will be lost, and the facility in Salina will close.

About 45 people work at the Salina center. Watson says some of those jobs will be moved to Fort Riley.

The exact amount of cuts to the current $22 million annual budget for the facilities will be known at the end of the fiscal year.

The maintenance sites rebuild and refurbish military equipment for the Department of Defense.
