Plow Painting 2017!

The City of Battle Creek, City of Springfield, and Battle Creek and Lakeview elementary schools collaborated in 2017 on a project to paint city snow plow blades.

Five schools participated with paintings of their choice. Our neighbors and visitors can check out the blades during the summer at our Department of Public Works, 150 S. Kendall St.
