The city celebrated the winners of the city’s first-ever snowplow naming contest over the weekend at an awards ceremony.

“We were so impressed with the creative names you came up with and we can’t wait to use them for our snowplows this winter,” said Scott Schlecht, city Transportation Maintenance Manager, in opening remarks.
