Website Accessibility

Polk County is committed to making our website accessible to all users, including those with disabilities. Our goal is to provide an accessible website that conforms to World Wide Web Consortium's Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.

We are making every effort to test the website and to remove barriers that prevent persons with disabilities from interacting with or accessing information made available on our website. When we become aware of content that does not conform to the WCAG 2.0 Levels A and AA standards, we will make reasonable good faith efforts to make the content conform to the standards.

Screen Readers

To assist our visitors who are visually impaired or blind, our website is compatible with screen reading software.

Portable Document Format (PDF) Files

We are currently working on our processes to ensure all PDFs are accessible to meet the “Safe Harbor” clause (E202.2) for legacy information and communication technology and updated Section 508 standards.

Download the latest free version of Adobe Reader in order to improve the viewing of these files.

While we strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website, particularly as it relates to content by third parties. If you are unable to access information on our website, please email miannenelson@polk-county.net to request the information in another format. Polk County will make reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
