LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY)- Nearly half of an hour-long public town hall meeting hosted by Mayor-President Josh Guillory was overtaken by protesters who chanted against the closure of four recreation centers on Lafayette’s northside.

Guillory attempted to speak during the demonstration but was drowned out several members in the audience Tuesday inside the Robicheaux Center.

Protesters were eventually escorted out by Lafayette Police officers before the town hall continued with questions from the remaining attendees.
