While how much winter remains is unknown, the New Hampton Park-Rec Department is looking ahead to warmer weather.
Recreation Coordinator Tara Hackman says they are taking applications now for a variety of spring and summer positions, including several openings for swimming pool staff, especially lifeguards.
The pool was forced to shut down periodically throughout the season last year due to the shortage of lifeguards. Hackman says those applying for lifeguard by February 28th will receive a free lifeguard hoodie.
She adds they’ve also tried to make wages more competitive for all positions, including Tot Lot Director and assistant, T-Ball Director and coaches, and a full-time, seasonal, park maintenance position.
Hackman says they’d like to have hiring completed in time for their mid-April staff meeting. You can find more information on available positions on the New Hampton Park-Rec Facebook page.
