2017 Dust Control
Our 2017 dust control applications are now available online and at the County office. Please take a moment to review the County's PW-P002 Dust Control Policy before completing your application.
Dust control applications must be accompanied by the required prepayment which is $300.00+GST for 100m of dust control treatment or $1,700.00+GST for 100m of road oil treatment. 100m is the County's minimum application length.
After we receive your application and prepayment, we usually begin applying dust control in early June. Any additional costs over and above the minimum 100m will be invoiced to you after the product has been applied.
The County has sole discretion over which dust control agent is used, and we make no guarantees on the effectiveness of the product.
You can contact the County office with any questions regarding the program. The application deadline is Friday, May 12th, 2017. You can find the application form here.
Snow Management Workshop
We will be hosting a snow management workshop on Thursday, May 4th, 2017 from 10:00am to 3:00pm. The presentation will be given by Toso Bozic who is a Woodlot Extension Specialist with Alberta Agriculture and Forestry.
