2024 Special Census


Polk City is GROWING!! The Mayor and City Council have decided to take the steps necessary for a special census. As of 2020, our population was 5,543 residents. We estimate we have grown over 1,000 residents since March of 2020 due to the residential growth. Polk City receives road use tax money based on our official census. The additional money Polk City can receive in road use tax, will significantly offset the cost of the special census. The special census is scheduled for September 16, 2024. All residents will receive information in the mail beginning in August. We encourage everyone to participate, as the additional road use tax funds help to reduce the property tax burden on our residents.
