County commissioners this week agreed to seek a state grant for the county landfill that provides money to help offset the costs of handling local solid waste.
The money is provided annually to counties with fewer than 100 thousand residents.
The grant will pay just over 90 thousand dollars for landfill services.
County officials said the grant used to provide hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, but it has been cut back over time.
Franklin County has used the money in the past primarily for capital outlay projects like buying new trucks and machinery.
