10/5/2007 | 2007 Snowplow Roadeo
The Village of Pleasant Prairie Public Works Department took fourth place in the APWA Wisconsin Chapter’s 18th Annual Snowplow Roadeo. Dennis Kammerzelt and Leonard Jensen competed, on behalf of the Village of Pleasant Prairie, against 70 other participating teams in a full day of written tests, pre-trip inspections and snowplow driving. The event was held on September 19, 2007 at Wisconsin’s own Lambeau Field in Green Bay.
“Operating a plow is a very difficult and often times dangerous job during Wisconsin winters,” commented John Steinbrink Jr., Streets and Parks Superintendent for the Village. “Visibility is often very limited, and plows are very large pieces of machinery. This is why Village staff train during the year and compete in these events.” The Village of Pleasant Prairie operates 15 plows, two front-end loaders, and three pick-up trucks to clear snow from 121 centerline miles of road throughout Pleasant Prairie.
“During winter in Wisconsin, we can all appreciate quality training and safety when it comes to snow removal,” added Steinbrink, Jr. The Village extends its congratulations to Dennis Kammerzelt and Leonard Jensen for a job well done.
