[ARCHIVED] Voting open for Jackson snow plow names

Would you rather see “Cas-Blades” or “Snowney Dog” driving down your street clearing snow and ice? Have your say in an online survey that aims to name five of Jackson’s plow/salt trucks! Voting is now open on 10 Jackson-centric plow names that were submitted by residents. 

Earlier this month, the City of Jackson allowed residents to submit snow plow names through the City website. Staff looked through more than 300 submissions and picked their top 10 favorite submissions, all of which have a special humorous, Jackson twist. 

Here are the 10 names being voted on:

  • Jackson Frost (As in Jack Frost)
  • Cas-Blades (References the Cascades waterfall and park)
  • Cold Air Jubilee (References Hot Air Jubilee, an annual hot air balloon festival in Jackson)
  • Cooper Scooper (References Cooper Street, a major roadway that stretches the length of the City)
  • Grand Shiver (References the Grand River, which flows through Jackson)
  • Bright Squalls (References the Bright Walls Mural Festival)
  • The Plowarlor (References The Parlour, a popular ice cream destination in Jackson) 
  • Under the Snowks (References Under the Oaks, a park in Jackson that is believed to be the Republican Party birthplace)
  • Winter Night Tree (References Summer Night Tree, a famous sculpture in Downtown Jackson)
  • Snowney Dog (References Coney Island Hot Dogs, which are believed to have originated in Jackson)

The top five vote getters will be applied to plow/salt trucks operated by the Department of Public Works. Voting will close at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 27. The City is starting with naming five plows in 2022 and will consider more naming efforts in future winters.
