The City of Park Hills, along with Erlanger, Lakeside Park, Crescent Springs and Villa Hills, has become a part of the Adopt-A-Unit Program. The five cities will be collecting items to send to our troops overseas. The group will also host fundraisers that will be posted on this site as they are upcoming. One very popular event will be the annual Kenton County Veterans Memorial “Armed Forces Day 5K Run/Walk” scheduled for Saturday, May 17th. For more information, or to register, please click here. The other event is a bowling fundraiser also in May. Please click here for more information.
Items for the troops can be dropped off at the city building, 1106 Amsterdam Road, Monday – Thursday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. and on Fridays between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.

The City of Park Hills feels this is a very important program and a wonderful way to show the troops, and their families, how much their service means to us!
After many years of exemplary service, Dennis Finke has resigned his position as Public Works Director. The City and Residents of Park Hills extend to Dennis our gratitude for his dedication and commitment. Dennis will continue his work as a full-time firefighter for the Independence Fire District.
Beginning November 23rd the Public Works Department will be staffed by Dan VonHandorf who has extensive experience in construction, landscaping, snow removal and operating heavy equipment. Dan will work forty hours per week and as needed for snow removal and other city emergencies.
The City extends well wishes to Dennis Finke in his future endeavors and welcomes Dan VonHandorf to his new position.
As of July 1st, the Kenton County Clerk will begin charging a $15 fee to your vehicle registration tax. If you have already bought your $15 city tag, please inform the clerk so that you will not make a double payment. Instead of issuing tags, the city will receive a monthly report from the county to show who has paid and who has not. Our clerk’s office will be able to verify that you already bought your tag for the year. If you still have not bought a 2013 vehicle tag from the city, please pay the $15 when you re-register your car.
Next year, 2014, residents will no longer purchase tags at the Park Hills’ clerk’s office in February. The $15 fee will be paid by residents when they renew their registrations during their birth month. We hope this will be a positive change so that residents will no longer have to make a trip to our city building in February to purchase tags. Now, you will only have to make one stop during your birth month to pay your registration and your $15 city fee.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the city clerk’s office at 431-6252
Please note the change in the city clerk’s office hours:
Monday – Thursday: 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Friday: 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Beginning March 1 the City of Park Hills will be switching Police and Fire Dispatch Services from Erlanger to Kenton County.
Residents will need to call:
356-3191 – Non-Emergency Calls.
911 – Emergency Calls
We encourage residents to call our offices for administrative questions; but want to remind you that there is not always someone in the office. Call the dispatch number (356-3191) when you need police or fire assistance.
