The lifeguards were scheduled to be off duty as of Sun., August 18th but will now keep a look-out on the beach until Fri., August 23rd at a cost of $7,000.
Council also agreed to consider extending the season for lifeguards for the 2020 season at both Centennial and Johnson's beaches until Labour Day.
The estimated cost would be about $30,000, which council will discuss in the yearly business plan and budget.
