The Bellevue Business and Professional Association (BBPA) awarded its 2014 Citizen of the Year Award to Craig Beyl for his many years of service to the Village of Bellevue and the community. Craig is currently serving in his final term as the Village President and will step down in April after serving 15 years. Craig has also been an active volunteer in the community including extensive service to Paul’s Pantry.
This is the 28th year of the BBPA presenting this award. The BBPA started in the mid 70’s as a means for local business people to meet and share information. Today the association includes more than 60 member businesses and 80 representatives from those businesses. The ideals of the BBPA are to continue to foster growth in the Village of Bellevue, to help improve the quality of life in the Village and to bring business people together to share ideas and thoughts, to share solutions to common problems and to help create an awareness among businesses and residents of the reasons why Bellevue is “A Great Place To Grow”.
