Most Kandiyohi County parks will not have lifeguards this summer
The new motto for swimming beaches at most of Kandiyohi
County's parks this summer will be "swim at your own risk."
In a cost-cutting move that will save $12,000 to $15,000 a year, lifeguards have been eliminated at four county park beaches.
Lifeguards on the Mill Pond at the New London city park, which are paid for with county and city funds, have also been cut.
