Transparency is an important part of my office. As a government office we are accountable to the tax payers we serve.
The gross annual budget of the McCracken County PVA office is typically about $1.2M. Nearly $1M of this amount is staff payroll and benefits. My office receives $50,000 from the city of Paducah and $176,300 from McCracken County for operational expenses. These amounts are based on a statutory formula based on parcel count.
We also receive income from the sales of our public records and website subscriptions. We use this income to pay for operational expenses. The largest of these expenses is typically payroll and biennial aerial photography. The remaining amount is used for office supplies, computer software & hardware, staff training, vehicle gas & maintenance, etc..
