More workforce shortages are impacting a DeWitt County community's ability to offer a summer service.
A lifeguard shortage is leaving residents in Farmer City with limited opportunities this month to utilize its million-dollar-plus pool renovation. Farmer City Manager Sue McLaughlin indicates they will only be able to operate the pool on select dates this month.
McLaughlin says it's disappointing to not be able to have the pool open as much as they want. They did a $1.6-million renovation of the facility and called it a labor of love.
McLaughlin says you need to watch the Farmer City Facebook page for the details. She indicates there is a pool page that has been made but it is not associated with the city.
