Name and Track the Snowplow

The Town is looking for help in Naming the Snowplows! Students from Rice and Eyestone Elementary have submitted names, and you get to help choose the winner. Vote for your favorite name at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScJ5cl2kToF8oMInl0kdRNh0j0SF3vjG-qiICNry5um3PY-Vg/viewform

Not only do you have the opportunity to help name the plow, but you can now access real-time plow tracking. There is a link on the town website and social media page that shows where the plow is during snow events. The map displays highlighted routes of the plow and a line color change that indicates how much time has passed since the last plow.
