ALGONA, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa National Guard says it will close its Algona Readiness Center next spring.

Officials say the unit based there and the about 90 soldiers assigned there will be moving to Camp Dodge in Johnston. The unit is Battery B, 1st Battalion, 194th Field Artillery.

Officials say the Algona facility is the 13th to be closed as part of a statewide National Guard consolidation and facilities upgrade program.

The 20,400-square-foot Algona facility was built in 1994. It will be turned over to the city for its use.
