We Are Roseville - June 15, 2021


June 15, 2021

CA Reopens


Energy conservation

Conserve energy ahead of high heat

Roseville Electric Utility is encouraging customers to conserve energy as extreme heat hits the region.

Residents and businesses alike can reduce energy usage with simple adjustments like bumping thermostats up at least two degrees and turning off unnecessary lighting. Conservation helps lower demand and avoid outages. Here are some simple ways to save:

  • Set air conditioning thermostats to 78 degrees or higher, if health permits.
  • Don’t use major appliances, like the dishwasher or clothes washer/dryer during peak hours.
  • Turn off unnecessary lights.
  • Close blinds and drapes.
  • Use fans when possible to keep cool.

Together, we can all make a difference. For additional low-cost conservation tips and other energy efficiency-related home improvements, visit roseville.ca.us/lowermybill.

Tips to stay cool

Tips to stay cool

Temperatures are expected to hit triple digits in the days ahead. If you are looking for a place to cool down, here is a list of locations you can visit. The Downtown Library is open extended hours as a Cooling Center, June 17-19.

Plus, check out more information on ways to stay healthy and cool.


Expanded hours and services

Beginning this week, hours are expanding at the Roseville Aquatics Complex, Mike Shellito Indoor Pool, Maidu Museum & Historic Site and all Roseville Public Library locations.

In addition, Johnson Pool opens for Recreational Swim starting June 15. In honor its 100th anniversary, recreational swim and family nights are FREE all summer. Come jump in!

For the most up to date information on hours and services, visit the PRL services webpage. 

Staffing Challenges

While we are excited announce these changes, we are fully aware hours aren't the same as a "normal" year. Parks, Recreation & Libraries relies heavily on part-time and seasonal staff to provide services. Staffing challenges have hit us hard - just as is the case with others in the region and the country. 

This is not how we prefer to serve you, but we are trying our best with the available staff. We trust that you will be patient and understanding as we move into our busiest season with the least number of staff anyone can remember, but more parks and services than ever.

Also if you know anyone looking for a job, we are hiring.


Expanded hours at the Utility Exploration Center

The Utility Exploration Center is now open Tuesday through Saturday.

You and your family can tackle city planning by building unique homes and connecting them to the drinking water plant; or, create a simple circuit to power a small motor or buzzer; or, explore like an engineer using Keva Planks or Blue Blocks.

Join us Tuesday – Saturday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Also, don’t forget to check out all of our amazing online resources as well at roseville.ca.us/explore.
