Villa Hills Slideshow
Welcome to Villa Hills
According to the 2010 census we have 7,489 residents and about 2,800 homes. Whether you are a long time resident, planning to buy a home here, or just making a visit, you will be a part of the number 1 suburb in Greater Cincinnati designated by Cincy Magazine in 2014. Villa Hills was also named the 7th best suburb in the USA the same year.
We have two excellent schools, River Ridge Elementary and Villa Madonna Academy grade school and high school. In addition we have Villa Madonna Montessori. We are proud to have the Sisters of St. Walburg Monastery and the Madonna Manor Complex which is home to a sizable retirement community.
The City operates under the Mayor/Council form of government and is a Home Rule class city under Kentucky Law.
Please do not hesitate to call us at the City Building at 859.341.1515 for any assistance.
Mayor Butch Callery
Our adopted soldiers from Fort Campbell have been deployed (again!) to Afghanistan. They are expected to be gone until February 2017. We are now collecting snack items to send a "little bit of home" to our brave soldiers. They have asked for items that are easy to carry in pockets - beef jerky, trail mix, snack crackers, hard candy, and flavor packets to add to bottled water. It is about 110 where there are at and sometime the mail sits in the hot sun before it gets to them. Some small things that I know they would appreciate is nicer body wash, shaving gel, and razors. Deodorant, eye drops and foot powder are much appreciated. Please bring your items to the city building by October 1st. We'd like to send these items before the Christmas rush. Thanks so much for your support!
APPLYING FOR HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION
Homeowners age 65 or older are eligible to apply for a Homestead Exemption.
Under the provisions of the Homestead Amendment, a person or persons must be 65 years of age or older or totally disabled during the year for which application is made, and must own, occupy and maintain a residential unit for such exemption.
A person or persons owning, living in and maintaining a residential unit must meet the 65 years of age requirement. If only one spouse is 65, the age requirement is met.
The Exemption amount for 2016 is $36,900. That amount is subtracted from the property assessment before taxes are calculated for the property.

Review the recently approved 10 year road plan!
Council recently accepted a 10 year road plan that includes using a combination of the recently passed road taxes, reserves, grants, and a $750,000 loan in order to catch-up on the most critical deferred maintenance issues with the city's roads. Please Note: the plan is subject to change as road conditions change on an annual basis. The intention of this plan is to address the worse roads first and will be updated as needed.

A note to residents about the Utility Service Partners warranty letter
Residents of Villa Hills will receive a letter from Utility Service Partners, signed by the Mayor, offering warranties for sewer and water line laterals. This is NOT a scam. Villa Hills has partnered with Utility Service Partners through the National League of Cities to have this program offered in our community. It is strictly voluntary. Residents are encouraged to contact their insurance agent to see if coverage already exists for your sewer and waterline laterals. Homeowners are responsible for the repair and maintenance of their laterals to the main. Residents who participate in an Home Owners Association (HOA) should check with their board to see if this issue falls to the HOA. The City of Villa Hills is not receiving any payment or commission for the issuance of any warranties. Several other communities in Northern Kentucky also offer this program.
Many residents have called asking if this letter is legitimate. It is. We thank our residents for their vigilance and for watching out for our community.
