BELLEVUE, Neb. (KMTV) - After two tornadoes ripped through Bellevue Friday night, the City has begun taking measures to enhance the cleanup efforts. 

On Sunday, Mayor Rita Sanders signed the Disaster Declaration for the City and submitted it to Governor Ricketts' office for review. 

The Bellevue Street Department is working with OPPD to secure power lines and ensure there is access to power line repairs. All streets in Bellevue are cleared and passable and crews are continuing work through the week to clear right of ways. 

For one more day, the city's tree dump will be at Cedar Island Road and Rose Lane, but beginning on Tuesday, the tree dump will be moved to Haworth Park. The tree dump at Haworth Park will be open until 8 p.m. every night until at least Sunday, June 25. 

Although the City will begin curbside pickup for tree-related debris Tuesday, it is still highly encouraged citizens use the free tree dumps. Branches placed on the curb must also be shorter than six feet.
