Old fema trailers went up on the auction block today in Gonzales and hundreds showed to buy a new home. The auction is part of a strategy to generate funds to pay for the Lamar Dixon Expo Center. Parish officials say they have about 400 trailers available. They date back from 2006 and they can have been used from Texas To Missisippi. Officials say the trailers are livable but they can't guarantee if Formaldehyde still remains inside. Organizers say this is a chance for people to buy one of these trailers for cheap.
