Dust control sign up is now open for residents in unincorporated Linn County. The only dust control option available through Linn County is seal coat (chip seal). All other forms of dust control are applied by private contractors.
Property owners wanting dust control, regardless of type, need to complete the applicable dust control permit form. Forms for self-application, application by private contractor, and application by Linn County are available on the Linn County website.
Property owners wanting a dust control option other than seal coat applied by Linn County should contact a local contractor and choose their dust control of choice instead of coming to or contacting the Engineer’s Office for dust control. A list of local contractors is available on the Secondary Road Department’s website. The property owner or applicant will submit their completed dust control form with the $50 permit fee to their contractor. The contractor will collect the permits and fees and provide them to the County at the end of the sign-up period. Application deadlines may vary with private contractors.
Property owners wanting Linn County to apply seal coat to their road will return their completed dust control form to the Engineer’s Office.
Completed forms for seal coat may be returned in one of the following ways:
- Scan and email the completed form to [email protected]. Call the office to pay with credit card, drop off a check, or mail a check for payment.
- Drop off the completed form with a check for payment by placing them in the locked drop box outside the employee entrance door.
- Mail the completed form to the office with a check for payment.
The deadline for County applied seal coat is May 10.
Please contact the Engineer’s Office at 319-892-6400 with questions or for assistance. Additional information about Linn County’s dust control program can be found on the Linn County website.
