DH City Manager

I would love to extend a warm welcome to our visitors as they venture through our website. We are excited about having the capability to provide the citizens of District Heights with the latest information regarding important decisions being made in our city.

As your City Manager and City Clerk my job requires me to organize and maintain all municipal records. These records include the city charter, meeting minutes, resolutions and city ordinances. The records that we keep on hand not only serve as a point of reference for our city’s leaders but they are also available for the public to view at their own discretion. If you are unable to obtain the records you are looking for, or if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

-Dr. Sharla’ M. Crutchfield
