Most Current Meeting: Audio File

The Polk County Commission (a.k.a. County Legislative Body) is a body that is made up of 9 commissioners, which are comprised of three commissioners from each of the three voting districts of the county. The commission’s job is to exercise the powers of a legislative nature granted to it by the Tennessee General Assembly in public acts (laws of general application) or local option application, which may be found in codified form in the Tennessee Code Annotated) or in private acts that apply to a particular county (that do not conflict with the general law). The commission has a considerable array of powers, including the power to levy property taxes, the power to expend funds for any lawful purpose, zoning powers for the unincorporated areas of the county, the power to fill vacancies in county wide offices and some regulatory powers which govern the public safety, morals and welfare.
