Information from November 25th below:
The Gillette City Council will meet today to try and re-establish some stability to Gillette City Hall. With former Gillette Mayor Tom Murphy submitting his resignation on Friday so he could pursue a business opportunity, the council must now restructure. City Councilwoman Louise Carter-King said they were scheduled to meet at noon today.
“At noon today, we’re having a special meeting where a new mayor will be appointed, and a new council president.”
Carter-King said after City Council President John Opseth takes over the duties of mayor, and his position is filled by a council member, they will then need to fill the gap in Ward 2.
“(In) Councilman John Opseth’s ward, there will be the opening, and we will be accepting applications. And all the details on that I’m sure will come out sometime after the meeting.”
