KINGWOOD — The Preston commission heard more requests for funding Feb. 26, as it works on the 2018-‘19 budget.

John Hyre, director of the Preston Workshop, asked for help purchasing a wash line for vegetables. Tom McConnell, team leader of the WVU Extension Small Farm Center and a workshop board member, said that the workshop has become a hub for area farmers to bring produce to be washed, graded, stored, packaged and shipped out.

Karen Stickley and Art Mouser with the West Virginia Conservation Agency’s Upper Deckers Creek Watershed asked the commission to again provide a $3,000 contribution. The money is used to maintain dams within the watershed.

IT Mindshare presented commissioners with a rundown of the work it expects to do for the county in 2018, citing a monthly fee of $4,083.22.
