Polk GOP finds temporary home for headquarters

Published 1:44 pm Wednesday, September 1, 2010

After about eight months without a permanent place to meet, the Polk County Republican Party has leased a building on Mills Street temporarily.

The GOP headquarters building roof collapsed last December following heavy snowfall and the building was condemned. The building was later torn down.

The Republican party has been holding meetings in different places, mostly using the Polk County Courthouse.

Republican Chair Cheryl Every says the party has leased the building located at 206 Mills St. and will be there at least through this Novembers election.

Some businesses are interested in buying the former GOP lot, but it has not sold yet.

Every says they have options regarding building a new building, but have to wait on the sale of the lot to proceed.
