Pool closes with some conflict

8/20/09 (Thu)

The Beulah Water Park closed abruptly for the season on Monday. Pool manager Laura Sandberg cited conflicts with the board overseeing the water park as her reason for resigning.

Sandberg said the problems came to a head on a meeting Sunday when she tried to arrange a meeting with the board over problems with scheduling lifeguards to work at the pool. She said the lifeguards had been working continuously for the two weeks the facility had been open. With some lifeguards headed for college and others participating in high school sports such as volleyball and cross country, it had become difficult to adequately cover the pool for the coming week.
