DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's largest military base says more than 10,000 civilian employees will get furlough notices beginning Friday.

Civilians working at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton already knew that federal budget cuts would likely force them to take some mandatory unpaid time off this summer.

The U.S. Department of Defense said 680,000 civilian employees will get 11-day furloughs starting July 8 — one day a week for 11 weeks.

The Dayton Daily News ( ) reports that base officials initially estimated 13,000 employees would be subject to furloughs, but it turns out that 2,300 civil service workers will be exempt.

The 88th Air Base Wing at Wright-Patterson is reducing spending by $30 million between now and September.
