The division performs snow & ice control during the winter, and organizes and manages the City-wide Spring Cleanup. The Streets Division oversees large cleanup efforts like the 2013 Atlas Storm to ensure streets are clear of debris and are safe for travel.

After a snow event, the Streets Division performs cleanup efforts, such as removing large snow piles from the downtown area. During heavy rains, crews may also be called out to open drains plugged by debris or close flooded roads. Personnel in the Streets Division consist of one Streets Supervisor, two crew leaders and 13 full time employees. There is a Streets operator on call 24 hours a day. In case of an emergency after hours, please call the Gillette Police Department at 682-5155 and they will contact the on-call person.
