New Buffalo

 

New Buffalo’s beach will have lifeguards on a limited basis this summer, despite an effort to drop the program.

Lifeguards will be on the beach on weekends and holidays only, much like they were last year.

Earlier this year city manager Dave Richards proposed a draft budget without the lifeguards on it. A local resident and a few lifeguard organizations protested and the lifeguards were kept on the budget.

Richards said finding lifeguards in New Buffalo is hard.
