The City of Gillette announces there will be no trash pick up on Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday.
City offices closed
City offices will be closed on Thursday, November 22nd in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday. City offices will also be closed on Friday, November 23rd - City employees receive Black Friday off as a Safety Day ONLY if the employees maintain low worker's compensation rates - which they did again this year! Working safely saves taxpayer money!
