Road Dust Control Update

Road Dust Control

As we are seeing an early Spring this year, the Village of Telkwa is working with local contractors and staff to achieve a timely dust control application on our Village roads. One of the challenges that we have is that we must work with our contractors’ schedules and the timing of delivery of dust control agent. Some residents may recall that last year’s application was delayed due to these variables. To address this, Council is currently considering other measures including developing the capacity to do this work ‘in-house’. We are doing a cost comparison to determine whether it is a fiscally responsible solution, and Council will consider the information and make a decision in the coming weeks.

Council is also working with staff to examine whether sealcoating is an appropriate option for two of our main arteries (Cottonwood and Tower Streets). This will be part of the discussion of initiatives to improve our Village road system in the future.

For further information, including the cost estimates and budgets for dust control and seal coating, feel free to contact Mayor Repen at (250)846-9008.
