Citing COVID-19 and a decline in public projects, a land development company headed by venerable Broward entrepreneur Ron "Alligator Ron" Bergeron will lay off 64 workers between March and April, he confirmed Tuesday. "Bergeron has thoughtfully and carefully been managing through these unprecedented challenges as a direct result of both COVID-19 and its impact on operations, as well as other ongoing declining business concerns," the company said in three layoff notices filed Jan. 27 with the state Department of Economic Opportunity. The company, Bergeron Land Development Inc., said it intends to lay off 26 workers each in Indiantown and Venice, and another dozen people in Longwood, all locations where projects are about to be completed.
