The as-yet-unnamed snow plow

Ever feel like naming oversized vehicles should be practiced more places than just at monster truck rallies? Well, fans of puns, plows and snow-free streets will rejoice at the city of Blue Ash's current contest.

The Blue Ash Public Works Department is hosting a poll to name its 7500 Tandem International Dump Truck snow plow. 

Why does a snow plow need a name? Why not?

“This contest has been a fun way to create engagement between the community and the Department,” says Public Works Director Gordon Perry in a release. “It has been a pleasure to see all of the creative entries. We had a tough time narrowing them down.”

Blue Ash communications coordinator Rachel Murray says there are five potential names in the running, whittled down by Blue Ash Public Works staff from more than 100 submitted entries.

The five up for public vote are:

  1. Bob
  2. Ctrl Salt Delete
  3. Joe Brrow
  4. Scoop Dogg
  5. General Plow Chicken

Voting is being conducted online at through 10 a.m. April 27. Murray says Ctrl Salt Delete is currently in the lead.

The winning name will be revealed on May 18 at Summit Park (4335 Glendale Milford Road, Blue Ash) during Public Works Week's 2022 Touch-A-Truck event, which offers kids (and adults) the chance to get up close and personal with the city's public vehicles like street sweepers, mini excavators and nameless snow plows.
