We Are Roseville - October 27, 2020




October 27, 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

oil filter

Free oil filter exchange every day in October

During the entire month of October, Placer County residents can take their used oil filter to participating Auto Zone or O’Reilly Auto Parts stores and exchange it for a new one!

DYK? A used oil filter is completely recyclable. In California, we generate 67 million used motor filters per year, which are banned from landfills. However, they contain about a pound of reusable steel each!
