MCHS takes over managment of high school pool


Effective the first week of December, Moffat County High School will resume management of the high school pool that has been under the direction of the city of Craig for one year.

"We are accepting applications for life guards and a manager," said high school Athletics Director Jim Loughran. "The pool will not be open to the public until the first of December as we get organized."

Details of why the pool changed hands weren't specific.

"It isn't something that needs to be commented on," Loughran said. "We're both moving on and that's what is important."

According to Craig Parks and Recreation Director Dave Pike, the city was losing money operating the pool and the pool management was getting behind in the paper work for the pool in the summer.

"We were losing money and getting behind administratively," Pike said.

Loughran said that the fees and hours are mainly what he, the school district and management need to discuss before the pool reopens to the public.

The high school girls swim team will still practice, but no one else will be allowed in the pool until times are determined.
