What's New?

PDS fulfills responsibilities from 47 metro locations.

Our staff will continue to serve Kenton County residents and businesses remotely from their homes across the metro area and beyond for the near future. This includes all services assigned to the organization by state law, interlocal agreements, partnerships, and contracts for professional services.

We extend the procedures that have been in place since March 16th to maintain the health of our staff and their families and to protect the well being of our customers.

Applicants for most of our review processes may submit required paperwork and fees through one of our online portals, precluding the need to interact face to face with staff. Please direct your questions regarding these processes or any other matter to them as usual—at 859.331.8980, Monday through Friday between 8 AM and 5 PM. Virtual meetings are an option staff can initiate as needed.

Staff is working diligently to keep turnaround times on applications and inspection requests in line with those processed before the COVID-19 lockdown. Permit applications should be submitted online, and staff will review drawings and return comments online. Requests for building inspections should be called in as usual.

Applications and appeals scheduled for public hearings before the planning commission, boards of adjustment, and code enforcement boards are being scheduled using online virtual meeting platforms. Meetings of the PDS Council and Management Board are as well. Agendas for these meetings and the URLs needed to attend these virtual meetings may be found on PDS’ website—www.pdskc.org.

Declarations and events will prompt changes to these parameters without much notice. If that happens, we will distribute those changes via our website and our social media platforms on Facebook and Twitter.

We continue to welcome feedback on all PDS programs, policies, and procedures. Use the satisfaction survey on our website to provide your comments.
