Mayor Friedberg announces plans for a new, temporary office location for Public Works, The new offices will be in leased space in an office building located in the immediate area. Follow the link above for more information. The Public Works building was located on Edith St, and after a second flood in 2015 it was quietly demolished and offices are now in a temporary structure.

A new Public Works building is listed FY2026 at an estimated cost of $9.8 million.
Update 9/13/2023: The Bellaire Pound has re-opened after recently undergoing some improvements, including upgraded safety walls, shade, painting, and general maintenance. We are excited to have these upgrades available for our furry friends. Before and after pictures are on the Bellaire Police Department Facebook page.
From the City 8/31/2023: We are excited to announce that improvements are being made to the pound! Unfortunately, the pound will be closed starting Friday, September 1, and we will have limited resources to house dogs during maintenance. If you find a dog in need during this time, we encourage you to contact a local rescue or shelter or call Bellaire PD for guidance at 713-668-0487. We will keep you posted when the Bellaire Pound is re-opened.
Note: The Bellaire pound will be updated and serve as a transfer station. A new pound will be located off West Bellfort in Houston.
