Polk County’s Board of County Commissioners has approved a plan that will help residents and small business owners left struggling financially from COVID-19 pandemic layoffs and business closures.
In late April, the county received $126 million from the federal government’s Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act grant meant to provide relief to small businesses and residents who were either furloughed or laid off from their jobs. Assistance will help pay for utilities, rent and mortgages, and help small businesses to remain open or reopen. The Board allocated $40 million for small business economic development needs, $30 million for health and human service needs, $30 million for community healthcare related to the coronavirus, and $26 million for county and local government’s costs and services dealing with COVID-19.
Beginning Tuesday, May 19, individuals and small business owners may apply online. The online application process will require residents and business owners to fill out a form, and attach verifying documentation with the application.
A call center to assist residents with questions regarding Polk County’s CARES Act financial assistance will also open on Tuesday, May 19. Call center staff will be available from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., Monday – Saturday. The call center telephone number will be published here when it opens.

Provide a unit cost/cubic yard for 5’ wide, 4” thick, fiber mesh reinforced concrete sidewalk
Plans will be available prior to final contract negotiations.
The deadline for submission has been extended until Friday, April 24, 2020 at 3PM.
Part 1 – GENERAL – WORK BY CONTRACTOR…STATES.
Contractor will also construct 5’ sidewalk along the eastern/southern right-of-way in accordance with plans prepared by Rayl Engineering & Surveying, LLC.
Can you send me that plan showing the sidewalk? The ECF plans I received do not show this sidewalk. Plans are not yet prepared. Please provide the concrete unit cost. Plans will be complete prior to final contract negotiations.
The ECF Plans call for the work to be from station 117+50 to station 125+89.21. This is consistent with the quantities provided. The ECF plans also show a 1’ deep swale on the West side road with (4) “ditch” blocks. Will the swale and the (4) ditch blocks need to be constructed? If so, does the pricing go in item #5 in bid scope sheet? Can you provide a detail for the ditch blocks? The swale and ditch blocks were previously constructed. Nothing is needed for these items.
The existing clay / millings road (according to the plans) is now at or close to final grade. This means the road way will need to be excavated out approximately 11.5” to accommodate the clay, limerock, and asphalt. Where do we price this item? In subgrade prep.
Since this is governed by SWFWMD, will you need certified as-builts? Project has exemption. Town will address formal as-builts from contractor provided redlines.
Can this section of the road be closed to traffic during construction? Yes.
The plans show silt fence. Which Item do we place the pricing for this? Silt fence won’t be installed as shown on the plans. We will adjust final quantities and costs with the selected bidder prior to contract finalization.
Will the City require soil testing…densities? If so, which item do we place the pricing for this. Yes, all standard testing will be required. Show as an allowance, please.
Will the permanent striping be thermoplastic? Yes.
Where do we price the MOT portion of the work? Include with mobilization, please.
