Employee of the Month

  • March 2018


    Ms. Lisa Nash moved to Polk County two and a half years ago from Gwinnett to be closer to family.  She has been working within the Building Inspection Department since June of 2017.  She enjoys her interaction with the residents of Polk County and assisting them with the permitting process from issuance to final inspection. 

    Brian McCray, Polk County building inspector nominated Lisa because of her efficiency and attention to detail. “Lisa has quickly learned the role of Permits Clerk and made a significant impact on the order and productivity in our office.  Employees like Lisa do not come around that often.”


    Congratulations Ms. Lisa Nash, March Employee of the Month
