    Bartow, Fla. (February 17, 2017) — The Board of County Commissioners and County Manager Jim Freeman will meet with Polk County Fire Rescue and Division of Forestry officials this afternoon at Indian Lakes Estates. 

    Times are approximate, but we expect that they will arrive at the Joint Incident Command and media area at Indian Lakes Estates at 3 p.m. Commissioners will tour the Indian Lakes Estates and River Ranch Hunt Club fire area with PCFR, then return to the staging area where they will be available to answer questions from the media. For safety reasons, media will remain at the staging area while commissioners tour with fire officials.

    No formal news conference is planned.

    Please continue to direct questions regarding the fire and this afternoon to the Fire Rescue PIO.
