East Grand Rapids to Hold Snowplow Driver Appreciation Week

Snowplow Week

The City of East Grand Rapids is celebrating the work of its public works crews during the first Snowplow Appreciation Week.

During the week of Feb. 19, the city is doing a series of activities to honor the hard work snowplow drivers do to keep the streets clean and safe during the winter months – and beyond.

“We are so fortunate to have outstanding crew members who are dedicated to keeping our city streets safe and looking good,” Mayor Amna Seibold said. “During this week, we are shining a spotlight on their work as an opportunity for our community to say thank you.”

Activities throughout the week that the public can participate in include:

  • Social media features: Each day, on the City’s Facebook page, snowplow drivers and their duties will be highlighted to share a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to keep streets plowed.
  • Public thank you banners: The public is invited to sign a note of thanks on banners hanging in the Community Center lobby, located at 750 Lakeside Drive.
  • Library activity: Kent District Library – East Grand Rapids will host a craft throughout the week where children can color a snowplow truck.

Additionally, Mayor Seibold and City commissioners will be visiting the public works garage during lunch and other scheduled breaks to share their thanks.

“Keeping our streets clear in the winter is one of the most important tasks our city does and without our team we all wouldn’t be able to move about our life,” Seibold said. “I hope our residents will join us in bolstering the great work our team does – and if you see a plow driver out, give them a wave!”
