Furlough notices are being issued to some 2,400 civilian employees at Fort Riley.

Army officials said Thursday that the furloughs will begin on or after July 14 and last through September 30, the end of the federal budget year.

The furloughs were authorized May 14 by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel as a means to comply with automatic spending cuts that took effect March 1.

Soldiers and families should expect some delays in services on the northeast Kansas post.

Matters relating to life, health and safety will not be affected.
