I have owned Guffy’s for the past 16 years and have seen many changes in Bellevue. In the last four years, Bellevue has seen numerous infrastructure upgrades for the water and sewer system, fire safety, park improvements, Broadford Road rebuilt, lighted crosswalks for our customers to cross Main Street, improved street lighting and new ordinances supporting better signage for our businesses. Bellevue has seen many new businesses of recent: High Country Fusion, 5B Roofing, Mainstream Real Estate Services, Brandie’s Kitchen, Ryan’s Mountain Rentals, Teadle Design, Mama Inez Salsa, Clover Stone Gluten Free Bakery, F-MTZ, Living Art Studio, Keller Williams, Frontier Flowers, Olsen Kustoms, Valley Country Store, North Star Builders, Treadle Design, La Cabinita, Family Dollar, Starly Levitt Insurance, all providing choices and services to our citizens and tourists which contribute positively to our economy.
This council reestablished the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce and has supported the Labor Day event, which is a growing success again. A Bellevue Urban Renewal Agency was created and has contributed needed funds for repairs to the Memorial Park picnic shelter roof, restroom enclosure, asphalt under the tables, ADA approaches, and $5,000 towards the library expansion and future park improvements. This City Council has accomplished great things on limited budgets by being good stewards of taxpayer dollars and surplus properties, making Bellevue safe and attractive for residents, existing businesses and future businesses to locate here. This council understands fiscal responsibility and it is easily seen up and down Main Street and through our city. Larry Plott, Barb Patterson and Amber Avila have the proven track record, no hidden agendas; they are honest, dedicated public servants, transparent in making decisions for the best outcome for the city as a whole. They can be trusted.
