KINGWOOD — Preston County commissioners are looking for more cash to sponsor the next e-cycling event.

At the Oct. 10 meeting, Commissioners Dave Price and Don Smith learned the State Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) approved a grant of $9,170 for a 2018 electronics recycling, or e-cycling, event.

The county requested $20,000, based on the City of Kingwood’s costs of $16,000 for this year’s event. Kingwood sought the county’s help in doing e-cycling because it did not receive full coverage of costs under a grant.

County Administrator Kathy Mace suggested commissioners make a new application, offering to put up some matching funds, in hopes of getting more grant money. Or it could approach Kingwood or Terra Alta, which have recycling programs, and ask for help funding the event, she said.
