Good Bye & Hello!

Hello Polk City & Surrounding Areas! My name is Suzanne Wille Polk City resident and business owner. I am please to announce that I will be managing the Polk City Square newsletter, Social media, and website. Kimberly Knapp started this great gem for a means of getting information out to our community. Kimberly and her family have started a new journey in a new state and we wish her all the best and a big thank you. I am excited to get the opportunity to work with the Polk City Development Corporation and Polk City Chamber of Commerce in keeping our community informed. I would like to ask that you be patient with me as I maneuver through all of this and get things rolling. There are always some changes that happen when someone new comes on board. I hope you find the changes refreshing and informative. I look forward to this new journey. Have a great week.

Cheers,  Suzanne Wille
