Milford one of the first cities nationwide to receive grant.
Milford was among four cities nationwide chosen for Domino’s Pizza’s Paving for Pizza campaign.
A grant from Domino’s paid to fill 40 potholes on 10 different roads. “Cracks, bumps, potholes and other road conditions can put good pizzas at risk after they leave the store,” said a press release touting the program.
Bartonville, Texas, Athens, Georgia and Burbank, California were the other cities.
“For the first cities we worked with a third party company that identified Milford as a city that would be open to take a paving grant,” said Domino’s media relations representative Jenny Fouracre. “The potholes were filled earlier this year.”
You may still be able to spot the Domino’s logo on filled potholes throughout town.
“We appreciated the extra Paving for Pizza funds to stretch our street repair budget, as we addressed more potholes than usual,” said City Manager Eric Norenberg.
Domino’s is not disclosing the size of the grants, but they are asking customers to nominate their own town for pothole repairs at pavingforpizza.com.
