Cherry Point announces furlough impact

Posted: Updated:
MARINE CORPS AIR STATION CHERRY POINT, N.C. -

There will be some reduction in services at MCAS Cherry Point because of the federally mandated furloughs of civilian personnel commencing on July 8.

It's the result of the Budget Control Act of 2011.

The air station announced Wednesday it's made every effort to reduce impacts of the furloughs on services provided to patrons. The air station's commanding officer has also asked everyone who works, lives or does business on Cherry Point to prepare themselves and adjust accordingly.

Some of the most visible services affected include:

The Cherry Point Commissary - Closed on Monday and Tuesday

DEERS/RAPIDS - CAC cards, dependent and retiree ID cards

Pass & ID - Reduced hours, 6:30 a.m. - 2 p.m. Monday-Friday

Facilities Maintenance, the Distribution Management Office, the Naval Health Clinic, and Public Affairs 

Critical schedule updates will be shared on the Cherry Point website and Cherry Point Facebook page.
