The village of Belovo for the first time is mentioned in 1726.[citation needed] It was named after a fugitive peasant Fyodor Belov, who built a small taiga house, a so-called zaimka, on the bank of the Bachat River. The year of 1855 was a new page in the history of settlement: the mining of mineral resources on the found coal field began. In 1938, Belovo was granted town status.[5] The town developed as a conglomeration of departmental settlements, whose population was directly or indirectly involved with the coal mines, a power station, and the railway.

Administrative and municipal status[edit]

Within the framework of administrative divisions, Belovo serves as the administrative center of Belovsky District, even though it is not a part of it.[1] As an administrative division, it is, together with four urban-type settlements (Bachatsky, Gramoteino, Inskoy, and Novy Gorodok) and two rural localities, incorporated separately as Belovo Town Under Oblast Jurisdiction—an administrative unit with the status equal to that of the districts.[1] As a municipal division, Belovo Town Under Oblast Jurisdiction is incorporated as Belovsky Urban Okrug.[2]


The town is governed by the Council of the People's Deputies, which consists of five committees, the Head of Town, Town Administration, and structural divisions.
