We Are Roseville - May 20, 2020


May 20, 2020

Message from the Mayor: Moving to reopen and looking out for each other

Last week, our community began a phased reopening.

This brings mixed feelings throughout our community. Since March, we’ve heard from people with opposing points of view passionately insist that their perspective is the correct approach.

The approach the City of Roseville is following is the law of the state. I’m asking for us to show patience and grace with each other. Everyone is adjusting to new social norms and new ways of doing things—things that we used to do without a second thought now take planning and intention. 

As we move forward in a different world, we want to maintain the progress we’ve made in slowing the virus. A reopening doesn’t mean a return to the life we once knew. Social distancing, hand-washing and the other safety directives remain imperative.

City’s proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2020-21 available for review online

Our budget-approval process continues for Fiscal Year 2020-21, which begins July 1.

The process began last fall with a public workshop where the City Council Strategic Plan was developed. Two planned public open houses on the budget were to occur in March, but were canceled as physical-distancing measures and restrictions on public gatherings took effect.

Today, May 20, the City posted the proposed budget for Fiscal Year 2020-21. You can view it here: www.roseville.ca.us/budget. For a narrative overview of the City’s financial situation and outlook, you can read the City Manager’s Budget Message

You can provide comments in advance of the budget workshop by emailing publiccomment@roseville.ca.us. The next opportunity for live public input will be at the City Council’s annual budget workshop at 4 p.m. June 1 (and June 2 if needed) in Council Chambers, 311 Vernon St.

Water line flushing before business resumes

Businesses that are reopening after an extended shutdown should consider flushing plumbing fixtures of stagnant water before resuming normal operations.

Stagnant or standing water has the potential to cause conditions that increase the risk for growth and spread of Legionella and other biofilm-associated bacteria.

Learn about the recommended steps here.

Staying home doesn't have to mean being bored. Recreation To Go kits provide creative and fun things to do at home each month. Discounts for kits for multiple kids. Limited number of kits available.
