  • Polk County Public Works will be conducting an Adopt-A-Road cleanup day on Saturday, May 3, 2014, from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. rain or shine. Over 60 groups are members of the Adopt-A-Road program and they help keep our County road system free of debris not only on the designated days (two times a year, May and October) but a few also help out on their own time beyond the twice yearly commitment. We at Public Works appreciate their willingness to volunteer and their effort helps to keep our roads and the County free of litter and beautiful.
