Penny Power Sign

When you see this sign it means your tax dollars are at work.  The money generated by the 1% sales tax is used by the City of Gillette, Campbell County and the Town of Wright.  The public votes on the 1% sales tax every fours years and several months prior to the election, the Campbell County Chamber of Commerce distributes a survey that asks the public to determine the projects the public have set as priorities.

The City of Gillette uses its share of the 1% sales tax for the capital construction of roads, water and sewer lines and electrical services, as well as infrastructure, such as drainage improvements and the waste water treatment facility. 
Campbell County utilizes the 1% sales tax for youth and senior citizen programs, county roads, emergency & safety equipment and social service agencies.  The Town of Wright uses its share of the 1% sales tax for capital construction, infrastructure and operations.
