PUBLIC NOTICE

 

The Municipality of Springfield is now accepting orders for seasonal dust control. Applications will be received at the Public Works Building located at 27055 Oakwood Rd. Unit 2, up to and including April 30, 2019. The current 2019 rate for residents is $.47 cents per foot (50% cost share), this includes all taxes. The cost to residents after April 30, 2019 will be .94 cents per foot.  The Public Works Department accepts cash or cheque payment only.

A minimum of 45 meters (150 feet) of dust suppressant is required, and not more than a 4.8-meter width (16 feet) is allowed unless deemed necessary by the Public Works Department.

The Municipality does not guarantee the effectiveness of dust control suppressant. Once a dust control suppressant has been applied, no refunds will be made. The use of a dust suppressant is meant to control dust on the roadway, not to eliminate it completely.

The Municipality will not be responsible for any private dust control product applied to the roadway by a resident, and will maintain the roadway as deemed appropriate by the Public Works Department. 

The Public Works office is open Monday to Thursday from 7:00 am to 4:30 pm and Friday from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm.
