Franklin County provides water and sewer services to about 40,000 residents in unincorporated parts of the county, and offers a discount program for low income customers.
The program provides a discount of 20% on water, sewer, or both, and in order to qualify, customers must either already participate in a government assistance program, or have income below the federal poverty level.
Don’t pay expensive fees for tax preparation or refund anticipation loans. Come to one of our 40+ FREE tax prep sites between January 24 and April 15, even if you don’t think you owe taxes. If your household income was up to $65,000 in 2013, we will prepare your return and file it electronically for FREE.
Call 2-1-1 for times and locations.

Commissioners have rolled-out a partnership to add the recycling of organic materials in the courthouse cafeteria. Commissioners hope that when combined with an already robust commingled recycling program, this initiative to recycle food scraps and compostable containers will help the cafeteria achieve Zero Waste, which refers to 90-percent or more diversion of generated materials from the landfill.
The Franklin County Board of Commissioners have released a free Mobile App for iPhone and Android devices that gives residents enhanced access to county government agencies from their smart phones.
The app features an adoptable dog search, county agency directory, commissioners’ news and job postings, and business service information, including open bid opportunities and surplus auction items.
The app is now available free to iPhone users via the Apple iTunes Store, and to Android users via the Google Play Store.
