We know you've been waiting patiently for the new 2015-2016 Polk County Directory of Services. Well, they have arrived - all 22,500 of them! Starting next week, we will be delivering them throughout the community. You can pick them up at your local chambers of commerce, city halls and other public facilities. You can get one directly from our office by calling (863) 534-6000. But if you really want to get a jump on getting yours, you can download and print your own by going to our website: www.polk-county.net. The Directory of Services e-Edition can be found by clicking on the green bar in the middle of the screen. It's pretty handy to keep on your desktop for quick reference.
