GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) - The Gillette City Council is scheduled to vote Monday on whether to fund a new police radio system. City officials say Gillette's share of the $1.6-million radio system would be $925,000. The remaining $675,000 would come from federal grants. The police department wants to replace its existing portable radios with a new 800-megahertz system. If approved, the city would put up a new radio tower and add an antenna onto a water tank. Officials say the current system doesn't provide complete coverage in the city.
