Cindy Arlinghaus martin
Cindy Arlinghaus Martin is a CPA from Petersburg, KY where she currently resides.
Prior to running for the Boone County PVA office, Cindy was a Certified Public Accountant at VonLehman & Company, Inc. in Ft. Mitchell, KY for 5 years. She also worked at attorney firms Arnzen, Parry & Wentz (currently Parry, Deering, Futscher & Sparks) as well as Greenebaum, Doll & McDonald.
Cindy graduated from Thomas More College summa cum laude. She has bachelors’ degrees in Accounting, Business Administration & Economics. She also graduated co–valedictorian of Conner High School.
Since taking office in 2006, Cindy has automated the office, updated technology, and made the PVA more accessible to the public. Cindy has many more plans that she is moving forward with for the Boone County PVA such as going paperless, providing full services online, the addition of mobile services and taking the technology in the office further to create an even greater efficiency.
Cindy has achieved many accomplishments in her short time as PVA. One of her top priorities was creating a website that was user-friendly and accessible to the public which was rolled out on April 1, 2010. It has also been one of her goals to create taxpayer awareness, which she has been able to accomplish by rolling out birthday cards to those 65 or older who are eligible for the Homestead Exemption, mailing courtesy cards, creating an online appeal website, and publishing weekly in the Boone County Recorder.
In addition to creating taxpayer awareness she has increased the accessibility of information. She and her staff have re-verified and input property characteristics, pictures, and sketches in the database and she has also implemented a CAMA system to fairly and equitably assess property without bias . Plus, she has re-moved fees for ownership and assessment information, and opened up the inspection period from 2 weeks to year-long for Boone County residents.
As the wants and needs of Boone County grow, Cindy is always open and available to the public. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to email Cindy personally.
