Open Budget

Easier access to City finances and budget now available through Open Budget 

Expanding on our relaunched open data portal, Open Roseville, the City has launched Open Budget with detailed data dedicated specifically to the City’s budget and finances.

Open Budget is a cornerstone of our commitment to transparency. It will give our residents a better understanding of the City’s revenues and spending in a user-friendly, interactive and informative way,” said Dominick Casey, Roseville City Manager.

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.

Measure C

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.

Energy saving tips you really Autumn know

Saving energy and money can be easy and inexpensive. These tips can help you conserve energy and save money this fall season, without compromising your comfort:

  • Water heating consumes up to 20% of total household energy use (energy.gov). Adjust your water heater temperature to 120°F and wash your clothes in cold water and try only running full loads.
  • Heating the house makes up about 29% of the average household utility bill (energy.gov). Replace your HVAC air filter monthly, or at least every 3 months, and check your ducts.

Visit roseville.ca.us/rebates or call (916) 79-POWER to learn about all of the rebates we offer for energy efficiency upgrades.

non-profit work

Local non-profits are putting City grant funding to good use

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. The proceeds of the sale were placed in a trust and a portion of the interest earned each year is made available for grants with the purpose of improving the quality of life for the residents of Roseville.

In the last grant funding cycle, $359,334 was awarded to and used by 21 organizations from July 2021 to June 2022. Among those helped with the grant funding included people with disabilities, veterans, families needing stable housing, those in need of reliable meals, teens, children and the elderly.
