We Are Roseville - September 15, 2020


September 15, 2020

COVID-19 Placer Update

Here is the weekly COVID-19 update from Placer County Public Health, which this week answers some questions around testing rates.

The Placer County Board of Supervisors took action last week to rescind their local health emergency. It is important to remember that we are still under the State Order and still must adhere to the State Guidelines.

Rescinding the local health emergency declaration does not mean COVID-19 is no longer a health risk.

  • We are not able to reopen as usual
  • Businesses need to continue to follow COVID protocols
  • Schools can only open with precautions in place
  • State orders still apply

The City will continue our enforcement efforts focused on education and compliance based on the state guidance.

poor air quality smokey air

Air quality advisory extended for Placer County through at least Friday

An air quality advisory has been issued by the Placer County Health Officer and Placer County Air Pollution Control District through at least Friday, September 18, due to continued poor air quality conditions from smoke from the numerous wildfires throughout the state.

Keep in mind that air quality can change rapidly at different times during the day due to wind shifts; therefore, it is important to monitor the smoke throughout the day in your area and make outdoor plans accordingly.

Keep an eye out in the mail for your resource guide to Roseville ballot measures

How we govern ourselves is at the heart of our democracy.

For the City of Roseville, the document that governs how the city conducts business is the City Charter. Every 10 years, residents volunteer on the Charter Review Commission to determine whether amendments to the Charter should be recommended to the City Council.

This time, the City Council placed nine amendments on the November ballot for the voters to make the final decision.

A resource guide about these nine amendments will be arriving in your mailbox soon.

What goes into your green waste bin

Lawn clippings, prunings, leaves, weeds and Christmas Trees are all the things you can put into your green waste bin.  Anything else should be trashed or recycled.

These items in your green waste bin are put to good use. We actually transport the green waste material to the Materials Recovery Facility off Fiddyment and Athens (in the photo above) where it is recycled and turned into compost.

This allows us to reduce the amount of waste that goes into the landfill and, instead, we create a usable product for customers to purchase.
