Your business is our business. Polk County only works if the residents have opportunities to work for fair pay and benefits. We make sure taxpayer dollars are spent properly by ensuring that county divisions follow procurement rules, meet local vendor and women/minority business requirements, and train vendors on how to submit quotes, bids and requests. Polk County owns real estate only if it generates revenue and benefits residents. We oversee the budget and manage our CIP porjects.
