Washington County Dust Control Rates Set

The rates for dust control applications will remain the same. The decision was made Tuesday at the Washington County Board of Supervisors meeting. The application fee is $50 and the late fee, after April 30th, is $100.

Jacob Thorius, county engineer, explained to the board that this service is offered but the county loses money on it. He said that his primary concern is to have a safe road for the traveling public.

According to Thorius, approximately $10,000 in fees was collected last year but nearly $56,000 was spent on the entire dust control process.
