Applications are being accepted for this year's Douglas County dust palliative program.
The program allows county residents to pay a user fee to have liquid chemicals applied to rock roads in front of their houses to reduce dust created by vehicles. The cost to participate is $1.30 per linear foot of roadway treated plus an administrative fee of $45 per location.
The effected life of the dust reduction method is about a year. The program is available to all county residents living adjacent to public roadways.
Applications are available at the Douglas County Public Works Department, 1242 Mass. Pre-payment must be received by 5 p.m. March 2 in order to participate in the program. For more information call the department at 832-5293.
