Welcome to The City of Druid Hills

The City of Druid Hills was incorporated in 1950 as a sixth class city within Jefferson County, Kentucky. The merger of the City of Louisville and Jefferson County did not affect how we govern.

The purpose of the Home Rule City of Druid Hills is to act as a common focus for its citizens in dealing with external agencies such as the Commonwealth of Kentucky, Louisville Metro, or neighboring small cities, as well as with service agencies such as public utilities and sanitation disposal.

The residents of the City of Druid Hills are represented by an elected board of four Commissioners and an elected Mayor.

The Commissioners serve a two year term while the Mayor serves a four year term. The city also appoints a City Clerk, an Attorney, a City Treasurer, and an Ethics Administrator. The City of Druid Hills is working to make a livable, friendly community where a natural and safe environment is maintained.

The City Commissioners, along with the Mayor, City Clerk, City Legal Counsel, and City Treasurer meet at 7:00PM the second Monday of each month. The meetings are held in the Family Life Center of the Broadway Baptist at 4000 Brownsboro Road.

Citizens are welcome to come to these meetings. Should you desire to be included in one of these meetings, contact the Mayor in advance so that you can be placed on the meeting’s agenda.


Please contact the Mayor or any Commissioner with questions.

Contact information is on the OFFICIALS page.
