Mayor: Make water efficiency California's new norm

At a recent workshop to discuss whether the state’s emergency drought regulations should be extended beyond February, two government agencies scheduled to report on drought conditions were noticeably absent because they were busy responding to flooding issues.

City Manager: City proactive in controlling labor costs

What does it take to deliver an excellent quality of life in a community? Good policies and great people.

Both have proven instrumental to Roseville’s ranking as one of the best places in the nation across a range of categories, including for safety, health, young families, entrepreneurs, and even being playful.

While our staff is passionate about delivering high-quality services that make Roseville the great community it is, the cost to provide services continues to escalate. As with any service provider, our highest cost is labor.
