Federal Government Shutdown Impact On City And County Government

The federal government’s partial shutdown isn’t expected to have much impact on city or county government in Fond du Lac. Fond du Lac County Executive Al Buechel says if the shutdown is less than two months it won’t have much affect, but could impact programs like land conservation which it hasn’t at this point. He says that could change depending on how long the shutdown goes on. Fond du Lac City Manager Joe Moore says he doesn’t expect an impact on city government. However he says it may affect people in the City who have federal jobs or depend on federal programs. He says it did have one immediate impact cancelling firefighter training at the National Fire Academy that some City firefighters were supposed to attend.
