What's New?

Offices open to public now; services still available online

PDS’ offices in the Kenton County Government Center are open to the public now. In-house staffing levels continue to be guided by Governor Andy Beshear’s executive orders. All services assigned to PDS by state law, interlocal agreements, partnerships, and contracts for professional services will remain available online through our return and beyond.

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

Applicants for most of our review processes may continue to submit required paperwork and fees through one of our online portals. Please direct your questions regarding these processes or any other matter to staff as usual—at 859.331.8980 Monday through Friday. Virtual meetings are an option staff can initiate as needed.

Staff has worked diligently over the past 13 weeks to keep turnaround times on applications and inspection requests in line with those processed before the COVID-19 lockdown. Permit applications may still 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 still 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. We expect to update this process sometime in July.
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 always welcome feedback on all PDS programs, policies, and procedures. Use the satisfaction survey on our website to provide your comments. Thank you!
