The City of Gillette's Public Works Department will begin Area 2 pick up on Monday, October 28th. Due to recent snow events and multiple passes through Area 1, the Public Works crews and contractors have spent more time in Area 1 than previously planned.
In order to make the remaining clean up as effective as possible, citizens are asked to place all their debris curbside by the first day of your scheduled area pick up. Once the clean-up crews pass through an area and pick up storm debris it will be quite some time before they return to that area - because the priority is to get to all areas before Thanksgiving. To assist the Public Works crews and contractors, please move ALL of your debris curbside by the first day of your area cleanup.

Traffic flow for Westover subdivision residents is expected to improve soon. City of Gillette Public Information Officer, Joe Lunne provided an update on that project this week.
“ The Westover Road water main project is progressing very well. We hope to have the majority of Westover Road from Highway 50 over to Westhills Loop paved by this Sunday. There is still some work to be done. Some tying work and some sanitary sewer work needs to be done at the Highway 50 Westover Road intersection. So there will be some sort of lane restrictions at that point, but by the end of the weekend the whole road should be open for driving.” Last Updated on Thursday, 24 October 2013 12:08Read more: Big Road Projects Getting Done
