The Putnam County Commissioners have announced the Dust Control Program for 2008.
The County will match funds up to $20,000 for Putnam County residents who live on gravel roads. Residents can choose between calcium chloride treatment and oil treatment to control the dust in front of their homes.
The County Highway Department will be splitting the cost of the 300-foot treatments. The Highway Department will pay $200 of the total cost of $400 for calcium chloride or $142.50 of the total cost of $285 for oil treatment.
The roads will be graded and holes filled in prior to the treatments.
DND Oil Company will be providing the calcium chloride treatment.
To sign up for the calcium chloride treatment residents will need to come to the County Highway Department at 1624 W. Co. Rd. 225S, Greencastle, between 7:30 a.m. to a 3 p.m. Monday through Friday by July 3. Loren Hoopengarner will be providing the oil treatment.
Both applications are a one-time cost share with the county. The county will not be responsible for and will not share in any cost to have the materials reapplied if the resident is not satisfied with the product.
