City tax bills are due September 30. If you have not received yours, please call the office immediately. Anyone who has sold or bought property since January 1st should check their closing papers to determine who is responsible for the tax bill. The City is not able to determine that, and bills will be sent to the owner of record as of January 1st, as this is the information we receive from the Kenton County PVA.
If your mortgage company pays these please be sure that they are informed, as we do not mail bills directly to them.
QUESTIONS: Call the City Clerk's office at 341-3017

Kentucky State Statutes (KRS 100) require Planning Commissions to prepare a comprehensive plan which serves as a guide for public and private actions and decisions to assure the development of public and private property in the most appropriate relationships. The following are required elements of a Comprehensive Plan statement of goals and objectives, a land use plan element, a transportation plan element and a community facilities plan element. The comprehensive plan may include any additional elements such as, housing, pollution, conservation, natural resources, regional impact, historic preservation, and other programs which in the judgment of the planning commission will further serve the purposes of the comprehensive plan. The plan is required to be updated every five years. Statues also require a comprehensive plan to be adopted in order to enact zoning and subdivision regulations. The Kenton County Planning Commission (KCPC) is our local planning commission charged with this duty.
