The city of Hopkinsville is showing its support for keeping Fort Campbell troop levels where they are with a symbolic resolution.

In the document, new Mayor Carter Hendricks and the Hopkinsville City Council members urge Congress to block possible reductions at the base outlined in a June 2014 Army report. That report contained a scenario in which Fort Campbell could reduce its active duty troop population by half in order for the Army to comply with budget constraints.

A community listening session regarding the potential cuts will be held on January 20 at the base's family resource center.
