GALLIPOLIS, Ohio -

Officials with the Gallipolis Developmental Center announced 80 job layoffs Thursday. 

Employees with the company found out Wednesday morning they have 90 days left in their full-time positions. The layoffs are due to downsizing. Officials say there are approximately 337 people employed and about 100-110 residents, making the ratio a little more than needed. 

The company offered some of those they laid off a two year early retirement incentive.
