Civic Center wide shot

Give us your perspective about local government

To get a comprehensive and accurate picture of Roseville residents’ perspectives about local government, the City of Roseville is conducting the National Community Survey.

The National Community Survey is conducted in 500 cities in nearly every state in the country. Roseville is participating in order to benchmark and track satisfaction levels and priorities over time in our community.

In January, 3,000 randomly selected Roseville households were invited by mail to participate in the survey. 

Now all Roseville residents have the opportunity to participate in an online version of the survey here.

The results of the survey will be presented at the City Council Strategic Plan workshop in April and shared on the city’s website.

Keep your balloons happy; keep them away from power lines

Mylar balloons make birthdays extra festive (especially spending it at home), but they can also cause a power outage if the balloon gets away and tangled in power lines. Avoid a blackout at your party by properly tying down balloons.

When a metallic balloon touches a power line or floats into substation equipment, it can cause a surge of electricity that short circuits equipment and can lead to power outages, fires, and possible injuries.
