The Leaf Valley Township does not apply dust control to sections of any township roads. Residents who want to minimize road dust in front of their homes MUST hire an approved licensed and bonded applicator to apply acceptable dust control chemicals that do not:
Degrade or damage the township road. Damage vehicles using the township road.
Township dust control policy requires that you contact
Road Maintenance Engineer, RBS Excavating or Township Clerk
before application can be completed by approved applicator. Notice needs to be given to either party no later than ten (10) days prior to application. Application must be completed but not before June 10, 2016 thru July 03, 2016.
If you do not inform the township clerk or township Road Maintenance Engineer, you risk the prospect of having your dust control chemical graded over by the road maintenance engineer, who might be unaware of its presence while grading. If the road maintenance engineer is forewarned, he will use his best effort to avoid grading over your dust control chemical. If you do not contact RBS Excavating or township clerk before you treat road with dust chemicals, the township will not be responsible for grading over your dust control treatment.
The Supervisors recommend contacting neighbors to help with setting better prices. We also wish recommend flagging or putting out stakes at the start and stop points on the road where you want the dust control chemical to be applied.
For the 2016 chloride season the Leaf Valley Township recommends and approves:
Fergus Power Pump #218-736-6772
You will need to contact a licensed applicator and make arrangements and set a date.
