During its March 14 meeting, the Polk County Commissioners Court received a strategic planning guide that was developed based on recommendations from others to help guide the process of engaging the community, the local elected officials and their staffs in developing some strategic goals and a plan for accomplishing those goals. During its April 11 meeting, the Court approved moving forward with its strategic planning process.
“This process helps us set policies for how the county is moving forward and for building budgets and also for having goals that are important to the community. We do engage in economic development. We do engage in advocating for different groups and also providing support to some of those areas. The idea is we move forward with the strategic planning guide and take what we’ve developed from our end and turn it over to the economic development corporation for them to get the business perspective and the economic development perspective and also allow the chamber of commerce and our local businesspeople to participate,” Murphy said during the April 11 meeting.
