Town Hall received a few calls after the storm about the quality of our water.   Our water plants never lost pressure and there was never a boil water notice issued.  The Town’s water is still safe to drink.

Polk County residents looking for temporary coverings for their homes damaged by Hurricane Irma can apply for Operation Blue Roof. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will be in Bartow on Wednesday to provide no-cost temporary repairs for damaged roofs. Roofs with 50 percent or more structural damage are not eligible.

Corps representatives will be available from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. starting Wednesday at the Bartow Municipal Airport, 5253 Airport Blvd. Only primary residences with standard shingled roofs are eligible for the program. Metal roofs and mobile homes will be repaired on a case-by-case basis. Vacation rental properties are not eligible.

To get assistance, you must sign a form to allow Corps staff and contractors to access your property. Those forms can be filled out at the Bartow Airport location.

The program is free and there is no charge for services. Operation Blue Roof is provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and managed by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers contractors. The program provides fiber-reinforced sheeting and installation to cover damaged roofs until arrangements can be made for permanent repairs.

  • Pets must be kept inside the property or restrained in order for workers to safely access the roof.
