Manager of the Sweet Springs City Swimming Pool Lindsay Fogarty was at the meeting of the Board of Aldermen on Monday, July 8, and asked aldermen to approve some requests.
City Clerk Michelle Fuehring explains the first involved the hiring of another lifeguard.
Fuehring also said aldermen approved her request to open the pool at 1 p.m. instead of noon on Sundays for the rest of the summer.
According to minutes from the meeting, Fogarty said was contacted by the Foster Grandparents Program about perhaps having a volunteer come to the pool to sit and interact with the youngsters. She said she had talked to the pool board, and the members of it were fine with the idea. Fogarty said she is going to make sure the volunteers are checked out prior to them being able to do any interaction. Aldermen voted 2-1 to approve the request.
