Polk County isn't in the business of holding property. If a property isn't on the tax role, it isn't generating revenue.
Polk's Right-of-Way and Real Estate office works to sell properties that the county owns, but doesn't need. Think of this as the clearance rack of property. This office is responsible for all aspects of the county's real estate acquisition and disposition services in the unincorporated areas of Polk.
Additionally, our office processes petitions to vacate right-of-way and easements along with petitions for street lighting districts.
