MANDAN, N.D. (KXNET) — A national pizza chain wants to give money to the City of Mandan.
As part of their ‘Plowing for Pizza’ program, Domino’s Pizza chooses 20 towns across the country to receive $25,000 grants.
These funds are meant to give cities aid in paying for snow removal and plowing services.
The City of Mandan was nominated for the donation, and must now vote on whether or not to accept the grant at a city commission meeting on the evening of Tuesday, February 6.
If accepted, Mandan Public Works has plans to use the grant money to upgrade its equipment.
“We’re looking at 30-yard roll-off boxes,” explained Mandan Public Works Street Superintendent Brian Dirk. “We use them for hauling snow. You have to manually open the tailgates we use right now, so it’s kind of unsafe. We’re looking at an updated version of these snow-hauling boxes that should be a lot better for the operators.”
A Domino’s spokesperson states that the campaign hopes to make it easier and safer for carryout customers to make it to one of the chain’s locations in snowy weather.
