The Ohio River crested and has begun to slowly recede back to its banks. The river has left behind debris and flood damage that we will have to deal with. The Mayor has declared a state of emergency through March 2nd for the City of Bellevue. This allows the City to waive procedures and formalities in order to provide quick assistance. To further assist with the clean-up, the City will place dumpsters at four locations most affected by the flooding:
Washington at Frank Benke
Foote at Frank Benke
Ward at Frank Benke
Van Voast at Frank Benke
The dumpsters should be in place late Monday or early Tuesday a.m. Given the nature of the clean-up, the dumpsters are available to residents in these areas only and not available for general use. This will be strictly enforced.
Residents in the affected area can bring debris and trash to the dumpsters. Residents in this area can also place the trash in front of their house or behind in the alleys as well. City crews will be working in the area to collect the trash and debris that is set out. If you have questions, please contact Keith Spoelker at the City Building – 431-8866 or leave a comment below.
