Water Project Manager Moves On

Yesterday afternoon at Gillette City Hall, it was announced that Utility Project Manager Michael Cole will be leaving  the City of Gillette staff for an opportunity to be in the private sector.  

“I’m looking forward to lending my talents and experience to others throughout Wyoming. I’m pleased to say that my family and I will remain in Gillette. I will continue to volunteer and serve our great community as a private citizen.”---Cole

Cole began his work for the city on July 31st of 2009. On hand for the announcement, City Administrator Carter Napier said Cole has been crucial to the success of the Gillette Madison Pipeline Project and the continued growth of Gillette. 

“We are certainly sad to see Mike go and we really appreciate all of Mikes service to the city. “---Napier

Cole said he was very thankful for his time at the city and everything they have done for him and his family the last five years. He echoed earlier comments by Napier that the Gillette Regional Water Project will remain in good hands.  

“With the design and permitting substantially complete, the construction program well underway, and all the funding sources secure, my role has transitioned from more of a program administrator to a contract manager; and again, at this time, I can state the project is on budget, and on schedule, for a completion in late 2016. ” ---Cole

Cole’s last day at the City will be July 21st.  Levi Jensen, an engineer for the City, will take over in the interim. The City has already begun advertising for Cole’s position, with a goal of having it filled sometime before the end of July.
