Fort Sill Furloughs

For Sill civilian furloughs are in effect as of Tuesday, but there is some good news.

Most facilities will remain open, just at a reduced capacity.

The furlough will cut civilian employees paid hours by 20%.  Starting Tuesday, they will cut one day each week through the end of the fiscal year.

Congress will then determine what action is necessary for the following fiscal year.

Fort Sill Commanding General, Major General Mark McDonald encourages everyone to be patient and understanding during the furlough period.
