  2. Safety First Holiday Shopping Tips The fall season is in full swing and holiday activities are getting underway. This time of year can be the most festive time, but safety and security measures are still important. Many of us will be walking the malls and shopping in stores, or ordering online to get the best deals. Some simple tips to stay safe while you are out and about include: Avoid distracted walking; be aware of your surroundings and whatever items you may be carrying Use purses that zip or latch as this makes it more difficult for someone to slip their hand in and your wallet out If carrying a bag, try to keep it in front of you, close to your body, or under your arm If possible, leave your purse or valuables at home – take only what you need Do not carry any more cash or credit cards than needed – more often than not, one card is enough Walk in busy, well-lit areas, or go shopping in groups Put shopping bags in your trunk before you park, be aware of prying eyes Online shopping offers a convenient way to shop and avoid the crowds; however, it may make you vulnerable to identity theft or porch pirates. Some simple tips to stay safe while shopping from home: Try to shop from reputable websites or sites you already trust and make sure you recognize the payment website (confirm that you have not been diverted to another website to enter your payment information) Pay using verified payment websites (sites that start with https://) Create strong passwords for all your online accounts – avoid passwords like: Password1 or Roseville123 Avoid clicking on suspicious or odd emails – always verify the sender is from a recognized email address If you are going to be away from home for several days, consider placing a hold on your U.S. mail Request delivery companies hide packages, if possible, to avoid porch package thefts Regularly check your bank or credit card statements to ensure there are no unauthorized transactions Being aware and proactive while shopping can help ensure that you have a wonderful and memorable holiday season. If you believe you have unauthorized bank or credit card charges contact the financial institution immediately. If your mail or packages are stolen, contact the seller and file a crime report on the Roseville Police Department’s website.

  8. Phase 1 construction anticipated in 2020 The first phase of Washington Boulevard/Andora Widening Project construction is projected to begin in 2020. The California Transportation Commission unanimously approved updates to phase 1 plans for the project. Valuable public feedback was shared with the commission at its October meeting. Phase 1 Improvements include: Installing a new traffic signal at the intersection of Washington Boulevard and Kaseberg Drive; Widening Washington Boulevard from two to four lanes between Sawtell Road and Kaseberg Drive, as well as between Diamond Oaks Road and Pleasant Grove Boulevard; Improving signalized intersections along Washington Boulevard; Constructing a new multi-use trail long the east side of Washington Boulevard, from Pleasant Grove Boulevard to All America City Boulevard; and Enhancing the current bicycle and pedestrian railroad under-crossing. Certification of the Final Environmental Impact Report will be considered at the Wednesday, October 23 City Council meeting. Phase 1 work is fully funded and will be paid for with a $2.2 million California Transportation Commission Active Transportation grant, $1.1 million in state Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality program funds, and $2 million in local funding from the City of Roseville. Future phase 2 improvements The total cost of phase 2 requires approximately $30 million. A significant portion of this amount includes building a temporary shoofly to allow continued rail operations during construction of a new wider railroad bridge. Despite applying for a variety of competitive state and federal funds, the necessary funding is not yet available for phase 2. Planned phase 2 improvements include: Widening Washington Boulevard from two to four lanes, between Kaseberg Drive and Diamond Oaks Road; and Replacing the existing Union Pacific Railroad Andora bridge with a new wider bridge.

  9. by Alan Bartley (Madu Neighborhood Association) There are city rules about when the trash cans can be on the street: 9.12.150 Rubbish placement-Collection time-Removing receptacles. A. Each refuse container shall be placed on the curb or parkway or in the alley for collection, not earlier than the evening preceding and not later than 7:00 a.m. on the day of regular collection. Those containers shall be removed from the curbs, parkways or alleys within 12 hours after the refuse has been collected therefrom. B. The garbage and refuse collection service is rendered to all properties within the limits of the city, and no service shall be rendered outside the corporate limits of the city. (Ord. 3382 § 1, 1999; prior code§ 11.14.) Commercial properties have a stricter set of rules: 9.12.080 Location of receptacles-Commercial property. Garbage receptacles at places of business shall be located in such place as shall be convenient to the city for removal of garbage. City-approved trash enclosures are to be used for refuse removal equipment only. Storage of other equipment or material will not be allowed. (Ord. 3382 § 1, 1999; prior code§ 11.9.) Underlying all of this is this basic rule. 9.12.140 Accumulations of garbage prohibited. It is unlawful for any person to permit garbage, rubbish, or refuse to accumulate upon the premises owned or occupied by such person. (Ord. 2050 § 1, 1987; prior code§ 11.12.)

More Information on Trash and Hazardous Waste The City provides a number of ways to get help with your trash, green waste, and hazardous waste disposal. As with most things having to do with the City or City services, the best place to look if you have online access, is the City's web site, Roseville.ca.us. In what follows we provide a look at what trash and waste services the City provides as a reminder. At the end we'll provide information on finding it online if other means (phone numbers) aren't already provided. There's a web site tool for finding out which day is your trash and green waste disposal day and which is just for trash. You search for your street address and a calendar is instantly displayed. If you prefer, you may add the information to your Google, iCal-based, or Outlook calendar. Or you may opt to print your home's schedule for the rest of the year. Need to find out where to recycle newspapers, containers, cardboard, plastic, glass or aluminum? Complete online listings of locations, including where to cash redeemable containers, are available.

  10. By Rob Baquera, Public Information Officer, Roseville Police Department Cast a Critical Eye on Unsolicited Charity Robocalls The phone rings, and an automated voice makes the pitch. Perhaps it's a message asking you to donate to a veterans' charity, or maybe it's one asking for you to make a critical donation to breast cancer research. And while our charitable instincts may urge us to act, it's important that we cast a critical eye on these unsolicited charity robocalls before donating to make sure they are legitimate. How It Works Scammers use the same techniques as trusted charities to reach you and this includes robocalls. The name of the fake charity may closely resemble the name of a real charity. The fake charity might ask you to wire money or send cash. See this as a red flag. What You Should Know Real charities need your support, and they, like your own bottom line, lose out when a scammer intervenes. Scammers will put pressure on you to act quickly, before you have a chance to think through your decision or do any research. What You Should Do Research charities before making a donation. It's easy to do. Check out charities at www.give.org or www.charitynavigator.org before donating. You can also reach out to your state government (find out which office at www.nasconet.org ) to see if the charity is registered to solicit in your state. Consider making an annual giving plan at the start of the year for all of the charities you will support. You can simply explain to any organization not on your list that you have made your commitments for the year. When it comes to fraud, vigilance is our number one weapon. You have the power to protect yourself and your loved ones from scams. 24-Hour Fraud Hotline (916) 645-7226
