Bellevue named Tree City USA
For the fifth year in a row, the Idaho Department of Lands named Bellevue as a Tree City USA. Department representative Debbie Cook presented the Bellevue City Council with a plaque to honor the city's achievement during its meeting Thursday, May 24.
In order to become a Tree City USA, a city must fulfill four requirements: establish a tree committee; draft a tree ordinance, which includes planting and maintenance; spend at least $2 per capita on its program; and promote Arbor Day.
Councilman Shaun Mahoney expressed his appreciation for the Bellevue Tree Committee's direct role in this award.
"Their commitment is above and beyond," he said.
