The Washington County Agricultural Education Center Inc. and the Pen Mar Development Corporation would become eligible to receive county funds under a proposal to be considered by the County Commissioners.
A public hearing on the proposal is scheduled for Tuesday, March 3, at 10 a.m. in the County Commissioners meeting room at 100 W. Washington St.
John Staub, president of the agricultural center board, said the center might borrow money from the county to match a $350,000 state grant for construction of the Washington County Rural Heritage Museum this summer. The center would pay off the loan through future donations, Staub said.
