  • Valor7: What I tried to say is that the actual money would not be there that quick. But a loan against that would work if they are willing to do that.

  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

Fort Leonard Wood is expected to lose an estimated 1,000 military positions and 180 Army civilian jobs by fiscal year 2015.

The loss comes as the result of national defense budget cuts.

Maj. Gen. Leslie Smith, Fort Leonard Wood's commanding general, made the announcement Wednesday during a town hall meeting on post. He said he wanted to be the person to deliver the message to be upfront and clear to the community.

“We will all be affected by this, that's why you are hearing this from me,” Smith said. “This is probably one of the toughest things I have ever had to do as a leader in the Army. It is my job to continue to care for our military and civilian folks.”

Smith said these force reductions were originally intended for fiscal year 2017, but cost reductions forced the Army to make cuts sooner.

“They were pulled to FY 2015 because frankly there was no money available to execute the mission that was required,” he said, adding that all reductions are still to be determined. “We don't know how many civilians, military members or family members will be impacted by this.

"The 4th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade will still continue to serve their mission through FY 2015.”

Smith gave a presentation that explained the impacts of sequestration in the last year required the Army to accelerate its plans to downsize.

As a part of this plan, the Army plans to deactivate the following Fort Leonard Wood units:

103rd Engineer Company

193rd Brigade Support Battalion

77th Engineer Company

94th Brigade Signal Company

156th Engineer Detachment

49th Engineer Detachment

94th Engineer Detachment

94th Engineer Battalion

4th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade HQ/ HHC

The 4th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade HQ/ HHC will remain on Defense CBRN Response Force mission until May, 2015. Fort Leonard Wood will also gain 595th Engineer Company, according to the presentation.The estimated net loss of the restructuring within the 4th MEB is 1,000 military positions and six civilian authorizations.

Force reductions will also impact civilians, who will be replaced by military positions.

Smith said that 140-150 Fort Leonard Wood civilian positions could be returned to military positions.

“A few years ago, we took military positions and put civilians in those positions, as we were growing the Army,” Smith said. “So now these civilian-to-military changes could impact positions in three brigades and combat training companies as early as current or next fiscal year.”

The 1st Engineer, 3rd Chemical and 14th MP Brigades could see the bulk of impact due to the civilian-to-military changes.
