Ramsey residents may see a uniquely decorated snowplow after the next snowfall this season.

Kids were welcomed into Ramsey’s public works building Feb. 18 during the city’s first ever Paint-a-Plow event.

Visitors could help fill in a design created by Rum River Art Center artist Mike Johnson, drink hot chocolate and color their own pictures of plow trucks.

The event was an opportunity for Ramsey to show residents up close what a plow looks like and share information about how the city keeps its streets clean.

Public Works Supervisor Grant Riemer shared some snow clearing strategies, such as how the city tries to clear all the streets in under eight hours.

Mark Riverblood, assistant supervisor for the public works department, said the city may expand the program, possibly including it in spring and summer events when more kids are out and about.
