City of Regina rewards 'Snowbuster' with snowblower
Regina's Snowbuster program used to encourage people to clear walkways
Not everyone can get along with all of their neighbours, but Regina's Kathy Mohr is being rewarded for standing out on her block.
After a winter full of shoveling snow in frigid weather, Mohr is getting a bit of help for next winter.
The City of Regina is giving Mohr a free snowblower as this year's Snowbusters winner. The program rewards one lucky person, who is nominated for cleaning their own and their neighbours' walkways, with a snowblower.
"Now that I have a snowblower, I will probably do the front streets for a couple of the other neighbours as well that they tend to build up on," Mohr said. "But I don't mind doing it."
Regina does not penalize people who don't shovel their walkways. Instead, it encourages people to help their neighbours.
"It was actually a nice surprise," she said. "I said, 'I'm not sure what I'd do if I won the lottery because I was sort of stunned. I just didn't believe that my name would be the one drawn out of all those people."
