What Our Employees Have To Say
“The best part of working for the City of Bellaire has to be the people (residents & coworkers). Every day is actually a good day in Bellaire. The Public Works Department is like a family with good and bad but at the end of the day all is well. Sometimes the stress of all the duties we have to accomplish in a day is nerve wracking, but when you receive a “thank you” from a resident it makes it worth the effort. Bellaire has blessed me beyond belief and I continue to serve the City and residents with the utmost pride.”

In the two years I’ve been here, I’ve had nothing but admiration for everyone.”
