Dominos “Paving For Pizza” comes to Rapid City
The pizza chain announced back in November that they would choose one city in each state to receive $5,000 to help repair their roads and Rapid City was selected for the state of South Dakota based on customer nominations. A city pothole repair crew officially started using the money Tuesday in order to repair some of the potholes in town.
“We were very appreciative of Dominos donating this to the city because everything helps. It;’s just that much more that we can do for the city and the citizens,” said Rapid City Street Superintendent Dale Pfeifle. Crews put down about six tons of pavement a day so this money could potentially be used to repair hundreds of potholes this year.
“Well I’m excited that it’s our community that we’re apart of, our franchise to be able to be part of it. So I mean that’s exciting to us and it’s always good to be able to give back to the community,” said Dominos Director of Operations, David Shearer.
When the hot mix plant opens in late April each year, the city promotes its “Pothole Hotline” so that people living in the city can reach out to city officials and remote any potholes that need to be repaired. So, if you have a pothole in your area that needs fixing, then call the Rapid City’s “Pothole Hotline” at 394-4152.
