BELLEVUE, Neb. (KMTV) -- — The problem always fires people up across the metro; it's a major issue in Midwestern cities. Some figured that because Domino's picked Bellevue for a pothole grant they had really bad potholes, but that doesn't seem to be the case right now.

Crews were out Wednesday filling cracks to make sure no chuck-holes form. The Bellevue Public Works Department says they have an aggressive approach to sealing the cracks and joints. They add that the Domino's offer seemed like a fun promotion.

Residents say the city does a fine work.

"For the most part Bellevue does a good job keeping things pretty much pothole free of course some of the major roads you get some just from traffic but they're pretty good about filling them right away. Omaha on the other hand depends on which area of town you live in whether they get filled or not," said Bonnie Bradley of Bellevue.

Potholes usually form when the weather gets warmer after the freezing period.
