The City of Lee’s Summit Public Works Department is inviting the community to participate in its first Snowplow Naming Contest. Residents can submit their unique and creative names for the City’s snowplows online at cityofLS.net/snowplow through Nov. 7.

Winning entries will be announced Nov. 20 on the City’s social media and website. The new names will be placed on the City’s snow removal equipment that is in service during the upcoming 2023-2024 winter season.

The contest raises awareness of the snowplows and the importance of the work done by City crews to keep roadways safe. By naming the snowplows residents are more likely to recognize them on the roadways and know to steer clear.

During snow events, City crews manage more than 1,000 lane miles of streets and cul-de-sacs. For more information about the City of Lee’s Summit’s snow fighting operations, visit LSsnow.net.
