Leaving a carcass in a waste container can attract dogs, cats and other animals to the container, which often leads to the carcass and trash being spread around the immediate area, street, alley or neighborhood. Leaving dead animals in roll-outs and dumpsters can create foul odors; it is also a welcome mat for bacteria. The City asks for the cooperation of all hunters in Gillette to assist with this request.

At the October 1st Gillette City Council Meeting the council had a public hearing to consider amendments to the Gillette City Budget for fiscal year 2012/13. Last week while appearing on News-Talk 1270 KIML to speak with host Glenn Woods, Lunne said the city wanted the public to be clear what the amendments meant.
Lunne said when people hear "twenty three million dollar budget amendment" they may mistakenly think the City has decided to spend twenty three million dollars more this fiscal year. Lunne says this is not the case.
During the public hearing, nobody in the council chambers came forward with any questions or concerns about the amendments. Gillette mayor Tom Murphy said last week, that he believes Gillette has never been in better financial shape.
