Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Local News

Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot and the Department of Streets and Sanitation (DSS) announced on Sunday the 50 final names chosen for the City’s inaugural “You Name a Snowplow” contest. The next step is for residents to vote on for their top six names by Jan. 31, 2023. The top six vote-getting names will represent one snowplow in each of the City’s six snow districts. Once the final votes are tallied and the winners are chosen, residents will be able to view the named snowplows, along with the city’s full snow fleet, in real-time during winter storms via the City’s newly updated plow tracker.  DSS manages more than 9,400 lane miles of roadway with a fleet of over 300 salt spreaders that are fully prepared to respond when needed, along with more than 400,000 tons of salt stationed at salt piles throughout the city.
