Employee of the Month

  • March 2019
    We are pleased to announce Mr. Randy Arp Polk County Employee of the Month for March 2019.

    Randy has 20 years of service and is a huge asset to Public Works. Not only is Randy an outstanding employee and is willing to help in any way possible, he is a man of character and integrity.

    There is no doubt his knowledge and skill sets have had a tremendous impact on Polk County as a whole. He sets a good example daily and never complains about his work load. In my opinion his attitude is standard setting and contagious in regards to his peers.

    We are very proud to recognize Mr. Randy Arp Employee of the Month for March 2019!
