Dougherty County -- More people in Albany are about to lose their jobs. This time at the Marine Corps Logistics base.

In January, the maintenance center at the base will lay off about 90 employees.

The base hired more workers as it ramped up a program to build and install armor kits on Humvees and other vehicles. That work is slowing down, leading to some of the layoffs.

"The Merck announcement was a surprise," said Tim Martin of the Chamber of Commerce.. This is not a surprise. We've been working forward and towards it."

The layoffs include contract employees and temporary workers who did such jobs as welding, painting, and forklift operating.
