Four new water-parks are coming to El Paso, which means more jobs. The City of El Paso tells CBS4 they’ve been working towards a greater economy for the city and these new water-parks will just help that growth.
“City Council has been very focused on the economic development of our city,” said City Engineer Sam Rodriguez.
Positions the city is looking to fill for the parks are lifeguard positions, concession workers, security guards, management positions and more.
“We’ve prepared a budget that’s going to be submitted to city council for approximately 200 jobs that will be associated with the operation of the water-parks,” said Rodriguez.
Rodriguez says they are not only anticipating adding 50 employees to each water-park, they will also need to hire construction workers for the projects as well.
“We’re anticipating to add about 600 construction jobs,” said Rodriguez.
Rodriguez says this is a great way to grow the economy, while also having a little bit of fun.
“Our goal is to make sure we provide a product that the community will take advantage of and it be very well attended,” said Rodriguez.
There will be two community meetings this week for you to give your input on the new water-parks.
