GILLETTE, WY – During the month of February, the Board of Trustees and leadership at CCMH are seeking input about healthcare in our community through a public perception survey. The survey can be accessed online at ccmh.net and takes about five minutes to complete.
The goal of the survey is to help hospital administrators understand the community's level of awareness and perceptions about the hospital's and associated clinic's services. "Listening to our community is very important as we assess our plans for the future," says CEO Andy Fitzgerald. "We are all striving to be our very best every day, and input from those in our service area will be valuable information."

Gillette – Sadly we report that one of the Patrol's beloved K-9's, Flora, has had to be put down this past week. The passing of Flora will be a great loss for the agency, but even a greater loss for Flora's handler and partner, Trooper Josh Undeberg.
K-9 Flora was diagnosed with cancer in her lungs and it had progressed far enough that she was euthanized after a veterinarian discovered that the cancer was inoperable. Last Updated on Monday, 03 February 2014 12:29Read more: Wyoming Highway Patrol Mourns Loss Of K-9 From Cancer
Effective March 1, 2014, the City of Gillette will no longer accept utility payments at local grocery store drop boxes. Historically, utility bill payment drop boxes have been located at Albertson's, Smith's and Don's Supermarket, and payments are picked up on a daily basis.
"Only a small percentage of utility customers use these drop boxes, and it's not cost effective for Customer Service to make the rounds and check the drop boxes when there are only a handful of people using the drop boxes for payment," said Public Information Officer Joe Lunne.

At Tuesday night’s Gillette City Council meeting , the council will consider an ordinance to amend the Gillette City Code to include electronic cigarettes in the definition of tobacco products which may not be sold to minors under the age of 18. Gillette Police Chief Jim Hloucal said the local ordinance will bring things in line with state law.
“Our city ordinance was a little outdated and didn’t include the definition of an electronic cigarette in the tobacco products; so we are just updating the city ordinance to match state statute to allow these violations to be charged in the municipal court. “--- Hloucal Last Updated on Monday, 03 February 2014 12:17Read more: Council Will Talk E-Cigs and Bottle Clubs
