The MD is gearing up for its annual dust control program, which allows residents to apply for dust control on rural roads in front of residences. Dust control involves the application of a calcium chloride agent to gravel roads that cause particles to stick together into larger chunks that do not spread so easily via wind or vehicle.
Residents wishing for dust control in front of their residence may make Written Application to the MD for this service. The rate is $150.00 per 100 meters plus $2.00 per additional meter. Completed applications must be submitted by 4:30 p.m. on March 29, 2019 for inclusion in this year’s program. Late applications will not be accepted.
