Itasca County has two different programs that relate to dust control application.
County Dust Control Program
Itasca County has a program to apply dust control on some County Roads which meet certain criteria. This program treats approximately one fifth of Itasca County's gravel roads. Decisions regarding which roads receive treatment are prioritized by maintenance needs and traffic volume.
Individual Dust Control Program
Itasca County also has another dust control program which allows for the County to share in the cost of an individual contracting dust control on a road that does not receive treatment by the County. This program allows the County to participate in 50% of the cost of the treatment up to a maximum County contribution of $250.
