We're set to get some rain along with gusty winds in the early part of the week. City departments along with partner agencies have been working together to prepare and will continue to monitor the situation throughout the storm.

At least one Roseville resident received a scam telephone call with an automated message, telling her that her credit card had been compromised, and asking her to “press 1 for more information.” The caller ID indicated that the call came from the City of Roseville.

Roseville’s utility billing services have not experienced any security breach.
