Fort McCoy Numbers Slip Across The Board
The numbers are out and they are dropping at Fort McCoy. Fort McCoy's total
economic impact for fiscal year 2013 was an estimated $902 million, down from the just over $1 billion in 2012.
Workforce payroll, operating costs and other expenditures totaled $282 million for 2013 compared to $317 million for 2012. The decrease reflects the impact of congressionally mandated sequestration, the furlough of civilian personnel and other personnel restrictions. A total of 2,443 personnel worked at Fort McCoy in 2013 and
approximately 72 percent of the workforce lives within Monroe County.
