Local business growth could get a boost from a county ballot referendum this November. If passed, the referendum would give the Polk County Commission the authority to extend tax breaks to new and existing businesses for new buildings and equipment, according to supporters. The initiative was placed on the ballot by the commission. County Commission Chairman Bob English represented Citizens for Polk Jobs, a political action committee, when he talked about the referendum during theSept. 1 County Commission meeting.
