The City of Bellevue is permitting access to all remaining residents of Green Acres and Paradise Lakes. Unless told otherwise, residents will only be granted limited access to retrieve their personal belongings and then they will be asked to leave the premises. Residents must first proceed to the Bellevue City Offices of Permits and Inspections, 1510 Wall Street, Bellevue, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. To help accommodate those residents who have difficulties responding during regular business hours, Permits and Inspections will be open Saturday, 3-30-19, from 8:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. The phone number of the office is 402-293-3014. Residents will need to sign a “Release” for a Limited Entry Permit. These documents will be required to get through the checkpoints at the entry of all neighborhoods affected by the flood. Once residents receive the permit, they will only be allowed access between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.
Dumpsters are located at 204 Industrial Drive for the disposal of property from Secured Storage and other items as individuals deem necessary. They are not for general dumping for businesses and Paradise Lake residents. Please ensure that you are contacting your insurance company and FEMA representative prior to clearing out all items from your home. Please also be aware that the homes that are Uninhabitable and have a “DANGER” placard will not be allowed to be rehabilitated and/or remodeled due to certification requirements from the manufacturer after a flood.
Businesses will be responsible for providing their own dumpsters for disposal of all items including metals, appliances, and chemicals. No burning will be allowed by residents or businesses.
Please contact your insurance company, FEMA, and legal counsel regarding any additional concerns or questions regarding your home.
Residents of Green Acres and Paradise Lake should continue to follow Bellevue Police and City of Bellevue Facebook and Twitter accounts for the most up to date information. Those sites can also be located by visiting the Bellevue Police and City of Bellevue websites.
