Appanoose County dust control program available to rural residents

CENTERVILLE — Appanoose County reserves the right to perform normal maintenance (such as blading and granular resurfacing) through areas of dust control to level uneven or rough areas, without liability for the cost of any new dust control application.  All dust control applications will be graded after Oct. 1, 2012.  Appanoose County grader operators will place rock at their discretion only.

Any person desiring to have dust control on a section of road under county jurisdiction shall be responsible for hiring an approved contractor.

The normal, minimal treatment available will be 300 linear feet with treatment being applied in one or two separate applications.  Scheduling of these applications will be the responsibility of the resident-selected contractor in compliance with Appanoose County’s request.  Appanoose County may prepare the site prior to the application by the chosen contractor depending on the need to do so.  Stakes can be obtained from the Appanoose County Secondary Roads shed.  Stakes must be in place from the beginning (May 29, 2012) to the end (Oct. 1, 2012) of the contract period.  Failure to maintain Appanoose County-issued stakes may result in loss of dust control.

Contractors approved by Appanoose County, and the costs to the participating residents, are listed below.  Payment for the dust control applications will be made directly to the chosen contractor.

1) Binns & Stevens, P.O. Box 1005, Oskaloosa IA 52577. (800) 451-1744; Using LIQUIDOW* calcium chloride material. Cost of treatment for the base length is $ 162.50 at $0.542 per foot. Price for two 300’ applications is $298 at $0.993 per foot.

The Iowegian wants readers to think about the solicitation ordinance that will prevent groups or individuals from entering a roadway to solicit money. The Centerville City Council in June by a 5-0 vote passed the first reading of just such an ordinance. Public pressure and during a subsequent special meeting, the council voted 3-2 to table the ordinance. A second special meeting to discuss the solicitation ordinance is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7 at City Hall. So, the question of the week is, "Do you or do you not support the ordinance to prevent solicitation of funds in city streets?"

A. I support the ordinance
B. I do not support the ordinance
C. Not sure
