Yesterday Gillette Mayor, Tom Murphy appeared on News Talk 1270 am KIML. Murphy talked about some of the current happenings with the city and also took calls from area listeners. The synchronization of traffic signals in Gillette was one complaint the Mayor responded to. Murphy noted that traffic signals on 2nd street and Highway 59; though in the city limits, are controlled by the state.
“What has happened in the past is that they have set these lights to synchronize and then they just leave them alone. It is my understanding, especially on highway 59, a program should be implemented this spring that they will actually measure traffic in real time and adjust accordingly, and so the complaint of coming through our community and having to stop and start will hopefully not be an issue come this next year. “---Murphy Last Updated on Friday, 27 September 2013 12:31Read more: Mayor Talks Pay Raise Debate, Traffic Flow/Construction Updates and WAM

“We had it out to the schools, they’ve taken it out to their teachers and also to their PTA’s. We had two public hearings on it. Not a lot of interest in the public hearings this time because we did reduce the number or early release days the last time that we did it. So there was not a lot of feedback on that.” Last Updated on Wednesday, 25 September 2013 12:44

Some reported seeing a bright flash along with that We checked with the National Weather Service, we thought it might be a possible meteorite or even an earthquake, but they wouldn’t release any information until they were done investigating.”
