How can I get chloride applied to my gravel road?

The Road Commission of Muskegon County will help your township pay for one application of calcium chloride on each gravel road per year. Normally, this application is applied in early June. We try not to apply the calcium chloride too early in the spring as it is quickly washed away with the rain. 

Additional applications must be requested by the Township, which pays the entire cost of this maintenance. If you believe your road is in need of another request for chloride after completion of the initial application, contact your Township office.
