Sharon Citino, Bellaire City Manager
City of Bellaire


A resident of Braeswood Place and a Bellaire High School parent, Sharon Citino is already very familiar with our community and jumped at the opportunity to serve in this role.  She’s got a wealth of municipal experience spanning more than 20 years, with a strong track record of leadership and team building, and has demonstrated the skills and temperament the City Council was looking for.

A self-proclaimed “committed public servant and local government geek,” Sharon started her municipal career as an Assistant City Attorney for the City of Loveland, Colorado.  There, she worked with and gained exposure to pretty much all city departments and functions, and regularly advised the City Council and citizen boards and commissions.  As a Senior Assistant City Attorney for the City of Houston, she developed particular legal expertise in all things water, and was involved in water and wastewater infrastructure projects, operations and maintenance.  That experience led to her most recent position as Houston Water Planning Director, in which she has grown further as an executive leader and manager.

Whether as an attorney or a director, over the course of her career Sharon has undertaken a variety of responsibilities across multiple subject matters, all of which have prepared her for the job of City Manager.  But she also knows what she doesn’t know, and is eager to learn.  She’s clearly talented and capable, and exudes enthusiasm for her work and for serving the community.
