Douglas County officials are accepting applications for keeping down dust this summer on sections of rural roads.
“With the weather the way it’s been, nobody is thinking about dust,” said Keith Browning, director of public works. “But they’ll certainly be thinking about it later this summer.”
Paid requests for receiving at-cost road treatments of dust palliative are due by 5 p.m. Friday. After that, requests made through March 31 are assessed a $15 late fee.
Each year, the county hires crews to treat sections of rural roads. Costs are unchanged from a year ago: Adjacent property owners can order service for $1.60 per linear foot, plus a $45 administrative fee per location.
Treatments typically begin in mid to late May.
