***CITY OF GILLETT RESIDENTS*** ***Reminder of Winter Parking Ordinance*** It's that time of year again! With having a few minor snowfalls in the books already, we wanted to send a friendly reminder to everybody regarding the Winter Parking ordinance: "Winter Parking. No person shall park a motor vehicle on any City street from November 1 to April 1 between the hours of 1:00 A.M. and 6:00 A.M.". As always, please feel free to contact our department if you have any questions (phone #: 920-855-2125). We do grant exceptions to the winter parking ordinance on a case-by-case basis, with the weather forecast being a major factor. All exceptions MUST be granted by a GPD officer. Vehicles that are found to be in violation of the winter parking ordinance will receive parking tickets AND/OR will be towed at the owner's expense so our street department can plow the roads. Please monitor this page, as well as the City of Gillett Facebook page, for Snow Emergency announcements. During these special time periods, there will be no parking on any city street throughout the duration of the snow emergency. This will allow our street department to remove the snow in an efficient manner. Thank you in advance for your cooperation! Feel free to "Like" and "Share" this post so the word gets out!!

Happy Veteran’s Day to the heroes in our community and around the country. We are in debt to you for your un-selfish service to our great nation. Thank you for your service 🇺🇸

Congrats, and welcome!

This is not meant to scare, but rather to educate and remind. Please be sure to check through your children’s candy this Halloween season. AND...speaking of Halloween sure to find our squad car during Trick-or-Treating on Tuesday afternoon/evening and assist your kids load up on candy for the year! Rumor is there are some rather large bags of candy waiting to be opened at the PD 😁

Great job by the Sheriff’s Office! Sadly, these types of drugs are around us. This is a great reminder...if you see something, say something. Almost all drug cases we investigate start with a citizen tip. You can call us or message us on here, and you can remain anonymous if you’d like. Our hope is that we can work together with our citizens to help make our community safe for our residents and visitors! Arrests Made Related to Drug and Property Crimes in Oconto County:

We extend our deepest sympathies to Deputy Connelly’s family, friends, and co-workers. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in the days and weeks ahead. Rest In peace, brother.

Have you ever sat back and thought to yourself... “I wonder how much twine it would take to go down W. Main Street from Oak Street to Finnegan Lake Road....” Well now you’s this much...

With the great summer weather we are experiencing this first weekend of Fall, we are expecting to see a large number of ATV/UTV's on our streets and trails. If you're on one of those machines, please be mindful of the ATV speed limit throughout town (10 mph), as well as being aware of the specific ATV routes in the city. We have a great resource here for that activity, and we want to make sure everyone is following the rules and being safe! Enjoy your time in Gillett, and we hope you have an awesome weekend, no matter your plans!

“We really tried to snap it up so we could be as efficient as we could and get back out to the fair,” Keplinger said. "But things went remarkably well and we took down a moderate-sized indoor marijuana grow. It was handled safely, it was handled effectively, and I’m very proud of the time they put in.” - Chief Jess Keplinger. The suspect was subsequently arrested and charged with manufacturing THC with the intent to deliver. Two marijuana plants, 15.7 grams of marijuana, and numerous items of drug paraphernalia were seized during the search warrant.


Please remember, school begins today. The area near both schools is a school zone, which means when children are present, the speed limit is 15mph. Please watch for buses and children walking. If your commute takes you that way, be sure to give yourself some extra time. We will be out enforcing all school-related traffic laws. Thank you for your help keeping our children safe!

We want to wish everyone a very safe and fun Labor Day weekend! Enjoy some beverages (responsibly!), have a burger or brat, and enjoy some relaxation!

This a great reminder with school starting up soon! Very soon the big yellow buses will be traveling on our streets. We work very closely with the great people at Lamers. We investigate every violation sent to us, and citations are issued. The safety of our students is our top priority.
