With high temperatures forecasted for the next several days, the City of Rochester is encouraging residents to utilize the Public Library and City Hall for cooling, during regular business hours.
Public pools will also be open. Due to an ongoing lifeguard shortage, hours of operation are adjusted daily. The Recreation Department is reminding swimmers to check the website for updates to the schedule.
