NOTE: If the title was issued prior to 2003 and you have an out of state lien holder, check the upper left portion of the receipt for application for Kansas title for "SMO to Lienholder".

While it is possible for the Board of County Commissioners to vacate a road on their own initiative, they are typically reluctant to do so without a petition.
Petitions to vacate a road may be submitted to the Public Works Department Office, 1428 S. Main St. Suite #5, Ottawa, Kansas. If you have any questions, please contact the Public Works Department at (785) 229-3550.
Designating a road as “minimum maintenance” reduces the tort liability associated with failure to maintain a roadway to normal standards.
The most common dust palliative products are calcium chloride and magnesium chloride. Both products consist of a “brine solution” found naturally in various regions of the U.S.A. The products have been found to control dust by attracting moisture from the atmosphere causing dust to “clump” together. This aids in dust control in two ways. First, the road surface tends to form a hard crust that does not have loose dust particles. Secondly, larger and heavier dust particles do not float about as much.
Franklin County does not guarantee the results of the product. We simply provide an enrollment service to allow the collective purchase of the product in a large enough quantity to achieve an economical solution. Once the enrollment period has closed, then departmental staff reviews each location to determine if it has been marked properly. The quantity of dust palliative required to cover the locations is then calculated and a bid process is initiated.
Once the bid has been awarded, large tank trucks are used to apply the product to the locations throughout the County.
Please note that the road must be properly graded by the Public Works Department prior to application of the dust palliative. In addition, occasional grading may be required should hazardous potholes develop within the treatment segment of the road. Degradation of the dust-controlling properties of the dust palliative may occur. If you have any questions, please contact the Public Works Department at (785) 229-3550.
