Well its over(Night Plow). Now What?
For some its going out of town and accumulating hours for those long summer ahead, for others its getting all your ducks in line to retire.
Keep in mind that hours are always good but planning is in order(Saturdays and Vacation extensions), because even though you have them(hours) they can sometimes be hard to use on Saturdays.
As for the soon-to-be-retirees you too better do some planning, and if you are moving to another state research and planning will be your number one objectives.

Number One Gripe this winter.
Boy there is nothing worst than driving around aimlessly during the night, but the options are limited especially when the decisions are being done for no other reason than to show that we are out there. In the beginning of Night Plow is not as bad as the ending of it because you are learning the routes and the equipment but at the end of Night Plow it gets very monotonous, throw in a mild winter and being questioned at every turn and you have a long Night Plow.
COUNT YOUR BLESSING AND STAY SAFE, ENJOY THE REST OF THE YEAR. JOB WELL DONE BOYS AND GIRLS 🙂
Uneducated guess! Soon! So if you are close to being hired, you best get ready. After June would be my guess, my reasoning would be that the Department would have a general idea of guys/girls putting in their papers and the new fiscal year starts on June 1st. With that said and money always being a reason to hire, you never know how long the City will wait to hire. Another tell tale sign is after Night Plow, usually the guys/girls get their calculators out at this time and start the process of reviewing their options. Good Luck 🙂
