Press Release 2017 Re-evaluation
In the last Polk County Commissioner’s Meeting, some citizens spoke during public comments who were upset with their property valuations resulting from the re-valuation process. It is important to understand that the Polk County Board of Commissioners have already approved the Schedule of Values and have no way of affecting their individual property valuations. While the Board of Commissioners couldn’t make changes to the schedule of values, or lower valuation, they all understood the concerns of the citizens who spoke so passionately during the meeting.

ENERGY ASSISTANCE PROGRAMThe LOW INCOME ENERGY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (LIEAP) is a Federally-funded program that provides for a one-time vendor payment to help eligible households pay their heating bills. Energy Assistance is important to all that receive it, but more so if someone in your home may be at risk for a life threatening illness or death if their home is too cold in the winter.
