No new jobs for MCLB Albany

Sept. 20, 2005

Albany - Albany's Marine Corps Logistics Base will not get new jobs because of the closing or downsizing of military installations. 

The first Base Closure and Realignment Commission report recommended that about 150 new jobs be created at Albany's base, if the Red River Texas Army Logistics base closed.

But the Red River Base was taken off BRAC's final recommendation list. Chamber of Commerce officials confirm those jobs will not be moved to Albany.

Tim Martin says 30 jobs will be moved from Albany's Marine Base to Robins Air Force Base, but he says all that is being changed is where the management is located. Most of those jobs involve work at Albany's base warehouses, so there will be no layoffs.
