NOVEMBER 30 IS SNOWPLOW DRIVER APPRECIATION DAY IN WISCONSIN

Governor Tony Evers has proclaimed Monday, November 30, 2020 as Snowplow Driver Appreciation Day in Wisconsin to remind drivers of the need to give snowplow drivers plenty of space to complete their jobs safely.  You can read more information from the WisDOT at: WisDOT Snowplow Driver Appreciation Day

The Winnebago County Highway Commission would like to add that our employees often work long, stressful hours to ensure your safe travel.  These large vehicles take a tremendous amount of skill and concentration to perform winter tasks.  We ask that you respect and appreciate them. Please turn on your headlights and slow down during inclement weather, so everyone can get to their destination safely.  Thank you.
