We Are Roseville - October 20, 2020


October 20, 2020

State of the City 2020

We’re living through history. 

Since we’re not able to meet in person this year for the State of the City, we’re doing something a little different. 

We’re using video to highlight how the City and community are navigating the challenges 2020 has brought.

You can still learn about the City’s operations and trends on a broader scale by reading the entire State of the City speech on our website. 

See the video and read the entire text at Roseville.ca.us/SOC

Water and hand, 800 x 400 px

Every day. That is how often we use water.

Could you imagine a day without water? No water to drink or use to make food. No water to shower, flush the toilet, or brush your teeth. Firefighters couldn't put out fires, pools would be closed, and farmers couldn't water their crops. And, your local restaurants, golf courses and parks would be closed.

Join the cause by taking a pledge and tell us how you value your water.  Just by entering, you could win a free car wash to Quick Quack Car wash. They, too, value water because all the water they use is recycled.
