OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - The city of Council Bluffs is short on lifeguards for public pools Pirate Cove Water Park and Katelman Water Park, so it is holding an event to get potential candidates to dive in.

Supervisors will conduct on-the-spot interviews from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at Pirate Cove, according to a news release. Anyone interested is welcome to attend. Candidates can fill out applications online or at the water park.

A spokeswoman for the city said the pools likely won’t be fully staffed and officials are working on a final schedule for hours of operation.

The Katelman Pool will be open for the season starting Memorial weekend Saturday, May 29. From Saturday through Monday, May 31, the hours will be from noon to 4 p.m.

Starting June 1 through August, the Katelman Pool’s hours will be from noon to 7 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday, and from noon to 6 p.m., Friday through Monday. The website has the prices of admission, pool parties, and swim lessons.

Depending on lifeguard availability, Pirate Cove is expecting to open in June.

Council Bluffs Parks and Recreation will hold a certification course for new lifeguards in mid-May, according to the release.
