BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- The first of two community input meetings on efforts to attract an Anti-ballistic missile base to Fort Custer was held last night in Battle Creek.
The backers from Battle Creek Unlimited had information available and a court reporter there to take comments.
Battle Creek and three other sites are all interested in attracting the the base, which would mean construction and permanent jobs and another big injection of federal dollars into the local economy.
The Base already boats a highly sophisticated command and control center where operations in Africa can be overseen. It also about to be home for a squadron of drone pilots.
A second public input session will be held at the YMCA facility at Sherman Lake Thursday evening from 6 to 9 p.m.
