No new addresses expected
No new addresses are expected for Polk Township's portion in the countywide addressing project. With the four boroughs - Mt.

May's report.
No new home building permits was Codes and Zoning Officer Gerald Zurat's report. However, other permits and activities were on his monthly report.
