Controlling dust on rural roads in the RM of Dauphin is a big concern for some residents.

It was an issue brought up during the most recent council meeting.

Laura Murray, the Chief Administrative Officer hopes residents get in contact with the municipal office before they put any fresh product down.

“What we do ask is if anyone wants to put dust control down, they are certainly allowed to, but if they would let us know ahead of time then we can make arrangements to prep their road so it’s ready and then the dust control can go down. They’ll have less damage potentially to their dust control.”

The RM no longer puts down dust control products after it was deemed too much of an expense and required too many man-hours.
