$2.75$2.10 per linear foot for the Dustay, while the cost for calcium chloride will be $1.30$1.15 per linear foot. Either option requires a minimum 200 foot application.*
Residents can sign up for the applications in person April 3-April 28 at the following locations:

The department will schedule with the suppliers to begin placing the dust control materials after May 1, depending on weather and road conditions. The materials will be applied in two treatments and will span the full width of the road.
Residents can pay by check or money order only.
