GRUNDY COUNTY, TN - In Grundy County, the sheriff is asking for money to help with inmates' medical bills.

Officials have petitioned the Tennessee Department of Corrections for a reimbursement of nearly 52-thousand dollars.

This will pay back the money spent on state inmates.

The county spends about 195-thousand dollars per year on all medical bills.

The sheriff says they're in dire need.

Officials are wanting to open a new jail next year.
