Our municipality continues to evolve — but the policy and pricing structure of its dust control program have not kept pace. The MD needs a comprehensive dust control policy that balances safety concerns with the need for practicality and fiscal prudence. The first step in drafting this policy is to get valuable insights from users of the program as well as MD residents at large.
Although user fees were increased in early 2022, the dust control program continues to operate at a loss. If the legacy policy remains unchanged, the MD will subsidize dust control activities by roughly $120,000 in 2023.
