Polk County Commissioners Work On Budget

By Laura Hamilton laura@kkcqradio.com (9/9/2019)

Polk County Commissioners have been working on their budget as they need to set their preliminary levy amount by the end of September.  Polk County Commissioner Joan Lee says employee wage and benefit package increases as well as organizational funding requests are pulling on the budget this year.


Commissioners just signed a lease agreement with Enterprise for the county's law enforcement squad cars. Lee talks about the advantages of leasing rather than owning the vehicles.


Lee says they will be looking at the lease option for other county department vehicles as well.
