HUMBOLDT — With summer fast approaching, Humboldt City Council members are in a sweat to staff the municipal pool.

“Fact is, we have had zero applicants for lifeguards,” said Mayor Nobby Davis at Monday night’s council meeting.

Usually, eight lifeguards and two managers are hired by spring break, said Staci Johnson, city clerk.
