Lamar Dixon Dismiss Employees

Lamar Dixon officials tell 9 News that parish officials are still looking for a way to keep the Gonzales Expo Center open.

Starting Sunday, some of the staff at Lamar Dixon lost their jobs. The State Livestock Show this weekend was the last regular, fully-staffed event.

Lamar Dixon spokesperson Lori Brannon says most of the center's staff will be let go a few at a time. After the last contracted event on May 31st, the 250-acre facility will lock its doors.
