The Town of Amherstburg is launching a new “Name Our Snowplows” contest.

From Dec. 8 and runs until Dec. 13, residents of Amherstburg are invited to visit to submit their creative and catchy names for the town’s four snowplows.

After the submission phase, the top entries will go head-to-head in a public vote from Dec. 14-20.

With community output on, four winning names will be selected to adorn the town’s fleet bringing a touch of personality to our winter road maintenance.A snowplow operates in Fredericton in this undated file photo.
