Watering days shift to one day per week starting November 1
As we move into the fall and winter months, watering days will change from two days a week to one, beginning November 1. Both commercial and residential customers can water on Mondays before 10 a.m. or after 8 p.m.
Remember to check your soil moisture before you water. Research tells us that people often decide to water their yards just by looking at their plants or if the weather is hot and dry. The result is that often people overwater, applying more than their lawn and plants need. The only way to know is to check soil moisture with a moisture meter or dig down with a hand shovel to determine soil moisture.
Learn more about Measure C, a hotel and lodging tax measure on the November ballot
Measure C proposes an increase in the hotel and lodging tax paid by visitors staying in hotels and short-term rentals in Roseville from 6 percent to 10 percent.
Roseville’s hotel tax was last updated 47 years ago, in 1975. Roseville currently has the lowest hotel tax in the six-county region and one of the lowest in the state. An increase of 4% would add about $5 to the cost of a $125 room stay. And generate about $3 million a year for any municipal purpose including essential services and infrastructure used by visitors.

Each year, the City awards grants to local non-profits through the Citizens Benefit Fund, created following the sale of the Roseville Hospital in 1993.
