Okotoks' street sweeper's have been officially named.

The decision came following a contest held by the Town, where residents were asked to submit potential names (the punnier the better.)

Ultimately, the Town decided on "Lightning McClean" and "Sweeping Beauty."

Other potential names included: Elma Fudd, Bruce Springclean, Sweepy McSweepface, and Meryl Sweep.

The names are displayed on the front of each vehicle.

They were briefly deployed on Tuesday and will be back out for routine street cleaning in the Autumn, collecting fallen leaves strewn about the Town's roadways.
