DUST CONTROL!!

Hello everyone,

Council has agreed to provide at no cost: One (1) application of dust control annually (including road surface preparation) for subdivisions, roadways adjacent to schools, and roadways adjacent to areas where a large concentration of residential homes in a small area experience high volumes of heavy non-local traffic. The RM of Prince Albert may provide an additional application(s) of dust control to areas where a large concentration of residential homes in a small area experience high volumes of heavy non-local traffic at the discretion of the RM of Prince Albert Council.

Furthermore, Council agrees to facilitate access to dust control for individual businesses/ratepayers/residents not residing in the aforementioned areas using the following model:

Individual businesses/ratepayers/residents requesting access to third party dust control applications on the roadway(s) adjacent to their residence(s) and/or businesses, may do so at a 50% cost share with the RM of Prince Albert.  Fees associated with the 50% cost share application will reflect current contracted rates and will be based on application(s) of 100 meters (or multiple thereof).  The 50% cost share shall include: the cost of application by the approved third party contractor and road surface preparation conducted by the RM of Prince Albert.  Any businesses/ratepayers/residents applying for dust control using the 50% cost share model, must sign an RM of Prince Albert Dust Control Agreement.

Ratepayers/Residents who wish to apply dust control using their own equipment/methods may do so ONLY while using RM of Prince Albert approved practice(s) and material(s).  Ratepayers/Residents shall ONLY commence applying dust control after the approval by administration, which includes signing of an RM of Prince Albert Dust Control Agreement.  **Businesses will NOT be eligible to apply dust control using this option.**

Dust Control will only be provided and/or approved for use on roadways adjacent to inhabited residences, schools, and businesses.

The RM of Prince Albert will determine what areas qualify for no-cost dust control outside of subdivisions and schools using the most recent traffic count data provided by the Government of Saskatchewan, combined with the number of inhabited residences per kilometer.

Should any of you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us at the office.
