PAST EVENTS

Open House - Dust Control Policy

On January 16, 2024 we heard input from our ratepayers regarding the 2024 Dust Control Policy in the RM.

There were 38 written comments provided at the event:

‘A Summary of What We Heard’

  • Dust control and the method of dust control is applied, directly affects the quality of life for rural ratepayers, including health, wear/tear/corrosion on vehicles, as well as safety issues.
     
  • Dissatisfaction with the shift from a 50/50 cost-sharing arrangement to effectively an 80-20 split, as well as the custom work rates, citing it as a significant increase, and affordability as a key concern.
     
  • Causes of dust are not the result of rural ratepayer’ actions but they are having to pay for it. As the rural part of the municipality, they feel they should not bear the additional cost, particularly when they are not causing the dust, but rather the increased traffic/type of traffic for which they are not responsible for.
     
  • Considerations for alternative methods of dust control including looking at other research, exploring alternative methods for dust control, beyond that which we normally do, including different products and using vegetation to reduce dust.
     
  • Alternative approaches to negating the cost and affect to rural ratepayers included having heavy haul users pay more for dust control, different cost approaches to dust control on over-dimensional roads, use of more environmentally friendly alternatives to dust control, reduction in speed, and use of proactive traffic counts to establish dust control parameters.
