At their September 17 meeting, Roseville's City Council voted to enact a social host ordinance. The ordinance was introduced and approved by City Council at its first reading on September 2, reaffirmed at its second reading on September 17, and will go into effect on October 16. Social host ordinances allow law enforcement to cite the hosts of parties that include under-age drinking or the use of marijuana and other drugs by minors. Read on for more information about the new ordinance.
Beginning the week of September 21, the police department's public counter will close early, at 3 p.m., on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Roseville’s trail network travels through open space areas which are a habitat for wildlife. While rare, there is the possibility of encountering mountain lions and other wild animals. Recently there have been mountain lion sightings reported along the Miner's Ravine/False Ravine Trail in the Stoneridge area. While seeing a mountain lion in an open space area is not necessarily a cause for alarm, we want to remind everyone that mountain lions, coyotes and other potentially dangerous wildlife live in our open space areas, and to take some common sense precautions.
