2016 Long Driveway Program Requests / Open Enrollment

Many homes in Tuscola County are set back from the county road and, subsequently, shielded somewhat from the effects of the road-side adulticiding operations. Therefore, if so requested by the owner, their property will be reviewed to see if it meets the criteria for the Long Drive program. The basic criteria for a home to be placed on the long drive list are:

  • There must be a residence on the property and the front of the home must be 300 feet or greater from the edge of the roadway.
  • There must be an adequate turnaround for our truck that does not include driving across any lawn areas.
  • The driveway must be passable with a two wheel drive vehicle, and free of any items.
  • The drive area must have significant vegetation, providing areas of mosquito harborage.

Other factors such as sensitive locations, for example No Sprays or Organic Farms, adjacent to the property may exclude the property from treatment except under specific conditions.

Homeowners must understand that treatment could commence as late as 1:00 a.m. and that windows should be closed prior to retiring for the night. We cannot notify residents when your property will be treated, as it is dependent on the route and the weather conditions.

If you would like to request your property be assessed for the 2016 season, we will begin taking requests March 21, 2016 through April 21, 2016. The office is open Monday – Friday 8:00am – 4:30pm
