The McCreary County Record


February 12, 2014

Local PVA records now online

WHITLEY CITY —  McCreary County Property Valuation Administrator Bruce Lominac announced last week that the public can now access property records — including parcel maps, photos, sales histories, and more — online.

    The PVA has contracted with qPublic, LLC, a private company founded in 1999 by former county property appraisal and Internet professionals. qPublic now serves more that 300 local government assessors in 15 states, including hosting online data for over 65 Kentucky PVAs.

    According to PVA Lominac, the service is being provided without using taxpayers funds.

    Basic information is free, as is access to downloadable forms and related links. More detailed information, such as maps with several layer options and neighborhood sales comparisons, is available with the purchase of a daily, monthly or yearly subscription to the qPublic site.

    This service will allow property owners, home buyers, realtors, appraisers, surveyors and others to have 24-hour access to the PVA’s property records.

    The public does have the option of accessing all the records free of  charge through a public computer station located within the PVA office.

    Lominac stated that the database should increase efficiency. With the records available without having to call or visit the PVA office, his staff will have more time to focus on helping those in need of more than basic information as well as implementing other projects to better serve the public.

    The site is updated twice monthly, ensuring that information is no older than two weeks and allowing the PVA an additional backup.

    “Because we’ve never had a program like this before, we are finding unforeseen benefits,” Lominac said. “We need people to use it to really know its potential.”

    Interested parties can find a list of participating counties, view the free information available, or subscribe to the service by visiting the website at
