Notes from Bill

I have been honored to serve as Muhlenberg County P.V.A. for the past 25 years. Because of this, our office has grown in professionalism and accountability. I attained my CKA (certified Kentucky assessor) and SKA (senior Kentucky assessor) designations from the Department of Revenue. In 2005, I was elected president of the Kentucky State PVA Association and re-elected president in 2006. I also served as the association vice president for 4 years. Since my election to PVA I have served on various state executive and legislative committees. These leadership roles have allowed me the opportunity to network with other P.V.A.'s in an effort to make our office more efficient and professional. I was so proud of our office for the recognition we received in 2008 as the PVA Gold Service award winner.

The Muhlenberg County PVA office became the first PVA office in Kentucky to use Pictometry digital imagery for our mapping solutions. Since then, over 60 counties in Kentucky have followed our lead and acquired Pictometry as their digital mapping supplier. We assisted several other county departments including: 911 center, sheriff's office, water departments, police departments and others to acquire and use this technology for the good of our county. These images are updated every two years, making our county a leader in departmental co-operation among other county governments across this state. We have recently been chosen by Pictometry International to speak and conduct a work shop at their Future View international conference. Professionalism and accountability are self-imposed requirements at the Muhlenberg County PVA Office and the staff can take pride in their professional performance. We enjoy serving you. The staff and I appreciate your trust and hope we continue to earn it. This web site has been prepared to assist you, as a property owner and taxpayer, in understanding the functions of your PVA office. We want it to contain information that is both useful and important to you, so we solicit your comments or suggestions for improvement. I am available to speak to and/or answer questions for interested groups. E-mail me personally at balwardlpva@bellsouth.net.

Muhlenberg County is a great place to live and do business and the PVA office is proud to provide this service to you.
