Roseville City Manager Dominick Casey announced two new additions to the city's leadership team.

As an Assistant City Manager, Payne will oversee Development Services, Public Works, and Parks, Recreation & Libraries.

Payne has played an important role in the development and implementation of the Downtown Specific Plan, including the Vernon Street Town Square, 316 Vernon Street office building, new Fire Station 1, the new Oak Street parking garage and the soon-to-be completed Downtown Bridges and Trail project.

Payne’s experience and depth of knowledge about the Roseville community, smart growth and land use planning will be invaluable to our executive team.


After a highly competitive recruitment process, Stacey Peterson will be joining the city September 5 as the new Human Resources Director.
