“What a great round of names! We had a great time talking through them, and the guys on the snowplow crew were already choosing their favorites before we started,” said Ward 4 Council Member Peter Padilla, who served as one of the contest’s judges. “While I’m disappointed that my own entry (icy come, icy go) was not accepted, I am excited to see Melton John singing ‘goodbye, slippery road’ when it clears the path this winter. Great job, kids!”
The winners will be recognized by the City Council at the December 5 City Council meeting. The winners will also be featured in a float at the 28th Annual Festival of Lights Parade on Dec. 9.
