Cobourg Will Replace Two Lifeguard Stations

In City Hall

Cecilia Nasmith/Today’s Northumberland
Council has approved the constuction of two new lifeguard stations by Sa-wat-ski Concept Realty in the amount of $24,200 (plus $370 in nonrefundable GST) at the Cobourg beach.
Councillor Brian Darling explained Monday that $12,000 of this cost is to come from the 2018 parks operating budget and the remainder from the Waterfront Master Plan surplus fund.
“It’s something we desperately needed down there,” Mayor Gil Brocanier commented.
Director of recreation and culture Dean Hustwick said they had hoped to get it done by the Canada Day weekend, “but that’s starting to come really fast, so I can’t commit to that.
“Certainly before mid-July and, if everything goes well, possibly by July 1 weekend.”
Councillor Forrest Rowden pointed out that there are four stations currently on the beach, and wondered if two were being added or whether the new ones are replacing the two that sustained flood damage last year.
They are replacements, he was told, and a much more advanced model than the ones already in place.
