Aquatic Management notes that we are not at panic (Code Red) stage yet, but the situation is worsening daily. Aquatic Management is confident they can keep the pools open, but please be patient and understanding if they have partial closures on random days when they suffer sudden resignations. They are working very hard to hire more people and resolve the problem. Aquatic Management has job openings for lifeguards. Their wage starts at $10.00 per hour. Community members: Please remember to show appreciation to the staff at our pool. Our pool needs to be an enjoyable and positive place to work. Aquatic Management can't keep losing younger staff who feel threatened due to rude, aggressive residents and children. For most of them, it's their first job.

Recommendations of neighbors' yards are also welcome as tips on where to look are preferable to having to hunt for yards.
