Snowfighers needed: City of Lincoln hosts hiring event for backup snowplowers

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The City of Lincoln is looking for “snowfighters.”

Lincoln Transportation and Utilities hosted a hiring event Wednesday in hopes to employ backup snowplowers for this winter.

Officials say they are looking for about 20-30 people to be on the standby team, as the transportation department already has a full-time staff.

Thomas Shafer, the assistant director at the transportation department, said large amounts of snow can burn workers out.

“We’d like to have a good pool of backup candidates in case we reach those sorts of situations,” he said.
