With the hot weather upon us, you might have been planning to pay a visit to the Gary T. Moses Municipal Pool in Victoria. Well, you might have to make other plans. A shortage of qualified lifeguards is causing the pool to close its gates to the general public until further notice.

As reported at the Victoria Advocate website, victoriaadvocate.com:

Just two weeks after the Gary T. Moses Municipal Pool opened, city officials are pulling the plug on the summer swimming season.

With three of the four lifeguards scheduled to leave for vacation, Parks and Recreation Director Colby Van Gundy said the city is "having a rough time at the pool."

"I'm real nervous about putting people through that pool without proper supervision," said Van Gundy, who has filled in as a lifeguard since opening day June 18. "My recommendation is going to be close the facility. We do not have enough guards."

The report goes on to say that private functions scheduled through the remainder of the summer will be accommodated. You can read the entire story by clicking the link below.

Looks like a sprinkler in the front yard might be your best alternative.
