What our employees have to say.
“My favorite part about working for the City of Bellaire is the flexibility of my schedule. The city graciously works around my school schedule; as well as the ability to work independently. My favorite days thus far are working during Holiday In The Park, because there is more interaction with residents. In my opinion, the one thing that differentiates COB from other government organizations is the fact that everyone is truly here for each other. We are a community within a community.”
— Christian Blount, Recreation Aide
“My favorite part of working for COB is the ability to help residents. I like working for such a personable community. My favorite days are Holiday in the Park especially the year I helped guide mascots. What sets COB apart is the friendly atmosphere. Part time and full time employees have great rapport and there is a sense of family.”
— Grant Haynes, Administrative Secretary
“My favorite part is being around co-workers. I love sharing life experiences with them and love improving the community. Every day is a favorite day. It’s a joy to have a job like this for 17 years. The people of Bellaire are a joy to work with and for. They love their community and hold each other and the city to a high standard. ”
