Benzie County Ends Contract With Team Services

Posted: Updated:

One county road commission voted to end contract with dust control company.

At a meeting held on August 22, the Benzie County Road Commission's vote ended the agreement with Team Services.

Benzie County residents who live on gravel roads still need the dust control.  The Road Commission entered into an agreement with Michigan Chloride Sales for a second brine application this summer.

Michigan Chloride uses mineral well brine, which is a natural product and not petroleum industry-based. The brine comes from a well that is established for dust control use. 

50% cost participation from Benzie County townships is needed for the second round of brine dust control application.

Each township will receive a letter explaining the decision and the cost increase for the brine. 

Townships will determine if they want a second brine application and to which roads the brine will be applied. 

Benzie County Road Commission continues to work with the Department of Environmental Quality in the Team Services investigation.
