After a regional bidding process, Kenton County has joined Boone County in the implementation of the CodeRED system, a high-speed emergency notification service provided by Emergency Communications Network.
Kenton County has been provided an initial database of residential and business telephone numbers, however, all residents are encouraged to visit http://bit.ly/KCCodeRED to enroll additional contact information including cell phone numbers, text and email addresses. If you live in an area with reduced cellular/internet connectivity, please make sure to register your land line phone in addition to cellular devices. No one should automatically assume they are in the emergency contact database.
Citizens of Kenton County will now be able to navigate the County budget through a platform known as OpenGov. The OpenGov platform transforms complex financial data into an interactive, digital format that enables better analysis and understanding of the County’s finances. The platform may be accessed at www.KentonCountyKY.opengov.com/transparency.
“OpenGov is in line with our continued efforts to be transparent with our community,” said Judge/Executive Kris Knochelmann. “It gives residents the tools to understand how the County allocates public money without having to be an expert in finances.”
