The Beautiful City Requires Your Talents...

eighth-most populated city outside the Chicago Metropolitan Area

Illinois. It is the county seat of St. Clair County, and the seat
of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Belleville and the National Shrine
of Our Lady of the Snows. Belleville is the most populated city in
the Metro-East region of the St. Louis Metropolitan Area and in
Southern Illinois. Due to its proximity to Scott Air Force Base,
the population receives a boost from military and federal civilian
personnel, defense contractors, and military retirees.

Scott Air Force Base is a United States Air Force base in St. Clair
County, Illinois, near Belleville and 25 miles southeast of St
Louis, MO. Scott Field was one of thirty-two Air Service training
