Piqua, Ohio (AP) -- Mayor Thomas Hudson thinks there soon will be openings in the Street Department.

A group of city workers who won the $207 million Mega Millions Jackpot on Friday have 180 days to come forward and claim their prize and then decide whether to keep their day jobs.

City manager Fred Enderle says the 16 city employees include 14 from the Street Department who pooled their money to buy the winning ticket. All showed up for work Monday.

Enderle says they were jubilant, but some are anxious about how to handle the news.

Enderle wouldn't identify the workers, who have asked to remain anonymous for now.

The employees have been pooling their money for about five years, although not everyone participated in every drawing.

    Maybe my son will have to leave WV and check out a job in Piqua. Wonderful news for those people. Lets hope they use the money wisely and glad to see someone win it that could really use it. Congrats.
