The Departmentworks directly with all other city departments to help create and maintain the content on the City's website, www.belleville.net.
Launched in August of 2013, the website was developed with the intent to provide helpful information for our residents and businesses, and for those who might be interested in starting a business in Belleville or visiting or living here.
In January of 2017, a complete update and redesign began. The new site, as you view it today, was launched in August of 2017.
The Department is responsible for coordinating the City's Quarterly Newsletter. The newsletter is published in January, April, July, and October. In addition to being available via the City's website, the newsletter is mailed to every business and residence in the corporate city limits of Belleville.
The City Newsletter contains helpful information and resources such as phone numbers of city departments and elected officials, holiday trash collection schedules, and upcoming events.
