The City of Hamilton’s transportation operations and maintenance team opened voting to residents Tuesday for its first annual “Name The Plow” initiative.
Staff are now looking to residents to choose one of 20 monikers which will adorn the exterior of 10 plows in service.
“Thank you Hamilton for the thousands of submissions that came in during our survey earlier in December,” the city said in a statement.
The 20 names, which include Mr. Plow, CTRL-SALT-DELETE and Plowy McPlowface were selected by how frequently they were submitted by Hamiltonians.
Other potentials include Clearopathra, Spongebob Snowpants and The Big Leplowski.
Voting closes Jan. 8, with the 10 winning names to be revealed during the week of Jan. 9.
