The City of Bellevue is sending certified mail letters to all residents whose dwellings are deemed unsafe or unfit for human occupancy due to the damage and contaminates from the flood waters. If a citizen's dwelling requires demolition, it is the responsibility of the owner to present a path forward with the direction they intend to take to correct the issue to the Bellevue Permits Department for review within 10 days of receipt of the certified letter.
All manufactured, modular and mobile homes located in Paradise Lakes and Green Acres damaged as a result of the flood have been deemed uninhabitable and their factory certifications are no longer valid. Therefore, without a current valid certification these homes must be removed.
Please contact our Permits and Inspections Department at (402) 293-3014 or at 1510 Wall Street in Bellevue, Nebraska during business hours of Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Residents of Green Acres and Paradise Lakes should continue to follow Bellevue Police and the 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 the City of Bellevue websites.
The City of Bellevue officials are continuing to monitor the conditions of the dwellings affected and will provide further updates as they become available.
Media inquiries can be made by contacting Lieutenant Andy Jashinske, of the Bellevue Police Department's Office of Professional Standards, 402-293-3106 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
