You have a new way to learn about what is happening with your city.
We are beginning City of Roseville Connections, a podcast series offering insights about trends, policies, and other factors affecting the operations and services the City of Roseville provides to the community.
In the first edition, Roseville City Manager Rob Jensen discusses the pressures on revenues and expenses of the City's half-billion dollar budget, what the City has done to address these challenges and what lies ahead.
The study was based data on the 550 U.S. cities with populations of 65,000 or more as measured by the U.S. Census Bureau. The rankings are based on a range of variables, including crime rates, employment growth, access to restaurants and attractions, educational attainment, and housing affordability.
A public workshop for the pending Oak Street Parking Facility Project will be held in the Council Chambers, 311 Vernon Street, 5 - 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, September 2.

Renewable energy is a hot topic these days, particularly energy derived from solar. With this industry developing so rapidly and the increase of information, many people are confused about what is realistically obtainable and what their options are with putting a solar installation on their home or business.
Roseville’s drinking water comes from surface water supplies from Folsom Lake. The Federal Bureau of Reclamation, as part of the Central Valley Project, manages this facility. Every year, the Bureau announces an annual water allocation that describes the amount of water Roseville will receive. Last year, we received 50 percent of normal. This year, the Bureau said that the initial allocation is 25 percent of normal, based on precipitation, snow pack and other factors currently.
The City of Roseville is now partnering with Public Purchase for posting, notifying and awarding of all formal requests for quotes (RFQs) and request for proposals (RFPs). This free e-Procurement service provides a single location to view all open requests for quotation and award information for previous RFQs, RFPs, and RFIs issued through the Public Purchase website.
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its issuer credit rating on the City of Roseville one notch to 'AA+' from 'AA' in its latest review published April 1. The upgrade is based on Roseville's strong economy, strong budget flexibility and strong budget management according to Standard & Poor's.
This credit rating upgrade has the potential to save the City hundreds of thousands of dollars with future bond issuances. The debt service savings to the City on the issuance of $35 million in bonds would be $500,000.
