Pittsfield: City seeks lifeguards and playground leaders for summer recreation programs

Both positions will begin the first week in July. Interested applicants for either position must submit their application to the Personnel Department at City Hall, 70 Allen St., by April 14. All candidates must be 16 years of age or older.
