PDS Council

Planning and Development Services of Kenton County is a city-county agency created to provide a multitude of services to Kenton County’s 20 local governments and their collaborative Kenton County Planning Commission. To assure equal focus on all jurisdictions and equal services to each, an elected official (and alternate) from each local government comes together to form the PDS Council. Appointments to the Council are made annually.

Responsibilities

According to KRS Chapter 147, the PDS Council’s most important responsibilities include:

  • providing a forum in which planning and growth-related issues can be debated and consensus developed;
  • electing members to the PDS Management Board;
  • acting in a supervisory and advisory capacity with the PDS Management Board;
  • reviewing and approving the PDS Management Board’s annual work program and budget;
  • reviewing and approving a tax rate necessary to fund the agency’s operations; and
  • contracting with a certified public accountant to audit the PDS Management Board’s records, books, and accounts.
