The Polk County Auditor-Treasurer’s Office handles accounts payable for most county offices except Welfare/Social Services, Public Works and Public Health. Any vendor making a claim for payment should direct their invoices to the department that made the purchase of goods or services. Once approved by the Department Head, staff will forward that authorization to the Auditor-Treasurer’s Office. The Accounts Payable Deputy will review their request and issue a warrant for payment. These warrants are normally processed every Friday.
Questions regarding payment status for most departments may be referred to the Accounts Payable Deputy in the Auditor-Treasurer’s Office at 218-281-2554
