Five county beaches lose lifeguards
WILLMAR -- Swimming beaches at five of Kandiyohi County's seven parks will be without lifeguards this summer, the result of a budget-cutting move approved Tuesday by the County Board of Commissioners.
The move is expected to save $12,000 to $15,000 a year, county officials said.
The parks that will be losing lifeguards are Parks 1 and 2 on Big Kandiyohi Lake, Park 3 on Diamond Lake, Park 5 on the northeast side of Green Lake, and Park 6 in New London.
