No one likes a damaged pizza! The City of Bellevue has been chosen as the Nebraska representative of Domino’s “Paving for Pizza” Campaign which states, “Bad roads shouldn’t happen to good pizza!” This program will provide $5000 to the City of Bellevue’s Public Works Department to spend on time and materials to patch potholes or other street related repairs throughout the community. Bellevue Public Works Director Jeff Roberts, received an email from the Marketing Department representing Domino’s in mid-December stating that the City of Bellevue had been one of the cities nominated for this program and Bellevue Mayor Rusty Hike is excited to receive this grant just one month into his tenure. Mayor Hike stated, “We will put this money to good use! Safe Roads are very important to the citizens of Bellevue and we appreciate the nomination and the funding through this campaign”.
Bellevue will join cities such as Des Moines, Iowa; Athens, Georgia; and Milwaukee, Wisconsin as cities that have received money from Domino’s for pothole repair. Public Works Director Roberts expects money from this program to be used to start patching potholes in the spring with all money having to be spent by late summer.
According tho their website, "Domino’s launched its Paving for Pizza program in June of 2018, asking customers to nominate their town for a grant to repair potholes. Since the program launched, Domino’s received more than 137,000 nominations from 15,275 different zip codes in all 50 states. Customers submitted so many nominations that Domino’s decided to expand the program to pave one community in each state." For more information on the campaign please go to https://pavingforpizza.com/
