COVINGTON - Merrick Krey, a familiar face in the Kenton County Property Valuation Administrator's office, is now the PVA.

And he's running for PVA.

Krey was sworn in Friday by Kentucky Supreme Court Justice Donald Wintersheimer to fill the unexpired term of Mark Vogt, who retired in December after 26 years.

Immediately after taking the oath, Krey said he will run in November.

Krey, a Democrat, has worked in the PVA's office for 25 years. Before his appointment, he served as chief deputy and director of real estate for 15 years.

Krey is an Erlanger native who now lives in Edgewood.

The PVA is charged with assessing all property, both real and personal, that is valued by the State Revenue Cabinet in Frankfort with the following exceptions: public service companies, bank shares, omitted tangible property and vehicles.

Tracking ownership changes, maintaining maps, updating building characteristics and administering proper exemptions for real property are also duties of the PVA office.
