Dust Control Offered for Marion County Gravel Roads
Marion County is offering a way to cut down dust along county roads. Marion County Presiding Commissioner Lyndon Bode says a dust control program is starting following approval by the county commission Monday. The recent move to white rock on the roads increased dust problems. Scottwood Industries will handle the dust control work using a calcium chloride application. Bode says the application lasts for about a year. Bode says other counties in the area use Scottwood to control dust on their roads. Cost is 81 cents per running foot with a minimum of 300 feet. Contact the Marion County Highway Department to participate.
Bode says the deadline to sign up is May 25th.
