       posters, in order to determine the level of interest in the Dust Control Program each year.

  2.  The Municipality will contract out to supply a dust control agent (s) for the Program each year. More than one supplier

       may be contracted as products may perform differently on varying sol conditions.

  3.  The Program allows for ratepayers to contract the Municipality to coordinate dust control for the roadway in from of the

       Ratepayer’s residence, farmstead, commercial property or private laneway, for a length of road determined by the

       year.  

 

  5.  The Ratepayer will indicate the length of roadway and /or laneway to be treated with flags the day prior to the date of

       the application of the dust control agent.  The flags are to be stakes which are to be a minimum of 3 (three) feet above

       ground for clear visibility by the truck driver providing the dust control agent.  It is the responsibility of the Ratepayer to

       ensure the stakes are in place for the date of the application of the dust control.

  6.  The Municipality accepts no responsibility for the effectiveness of the dust control agent.

  7.  The Municipality reserves the right to perform such maintenance procedures as it seems necessary on the treated

       portion of the roadway.  Although the municipality will attempt to minimize any adverse effects of these operations on

       the treated portion of the roadway, the Municipality will not accept liability for any restoration required.

  8.  The Municipality reserves the right to perform its “regular” maintenance procedures as it deems necessary on the

       treated portion of the roadway after the 1st day of October each year in order to prepare the roadways for the winter
