Who We Are

The County Appraiser’s Office consists of a team of 17 full-time employees and 1 part-time employee. Our duties are mandated by Kansas Statutes and the Kansas Constitution. 

While we’re employed by Riley County, we answer to the Kansas Department of Revenue’s Property Valuation Division (PVD). PVD provides the rules, regulations, appraisal methods and educational standards for our work. In addition, they monitor, audit and test our work throughout the year. 

At the end of each annual appraisal cycle, PVD issues the results of their findings. Their findings result in scores for Procedural Compliance and the Sales Ratio Study. The County is graded and scored in both of these areas. The outcome of these two reports determines whether our office meets compliance or not. If not, PVD mandates the needed changes and can actually take over administration of the Appraiser’s Office if deemed necessary. 

Each of the last three years, our office has met compliance and received a perfect Procedural Compliance score.
