Wells trustees receive reports on pool opening

BRILLIANT – Wells Township officials are hoping for a Memorial Day opening of the township pool, but it will depend on whether everything will be ready in time.

That was the report received from Charles Nest, pool manager, during a recent meeting of the township trustees. He also reported the pool has held its water level all year.

Applications are being accepted for lifeguards, it was noted. Applicants must be at least 15 years old. Applications are available at the township office, 409 Prospect St., with office hours being 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays. The wage is $8.50 per hour. For information, call (740) 598-9602.

Officials also heard that three picnic tables are rotted and must be replaced, while some writing had been painted on the North Park shelter.
