|Editorial by Mayor Susan Rohan|
The State of California is currently developing the Bay Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP) with the goals of providing a more reliable water supply for southern California and restoring the ecosystem of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. As a longtime member of this community, I am deeply concerned that this plan, as it currently exists, totally ignores severe threats to northern California and Roseville's long-term water supply reliability and here’s why.
The BDCP’s modeling projections show that continuing sea level rise and increasing statewide water demands in the coming years are likely to draw Folsom Reservoir to such low levels in the driest years that Roseville might not be able to meet its water needs. However, the existing and long term water needs of areas served by Folsom Reservoir, including Roseville, have largely been ignored in the BDCP.

The following public statement is being released by the City of Roseville and posted to its website in response to the police union's press conferences and email campaigns to citizens, the most recent of which occurred earlier this week and generated inquiries to the City that must be addressed.
From Roseville Mayor Susan Rohan:
Police union leaders have held press conferences and sent out emails to citizens, which misrepresent the facts. Before we address union tactics, the first thing I'd like to do is assure this community that our police officers are honorably performing their public safety commitment and that their service is valued by the City Council and City leaders.
That said, I am absolutely perplexed that the leaders of this union, with which the City has had a strong partnership for years, are not following the protocol established by the labor relations process. The union leaders have so far not requested to come back to the table to negotiate a contract. The council action May 30 was to impose terms and conditions of its last offer (which included increased benefits such as health care increases and additional personal leave), until a contract could be negotiated. The ball is in their court to return to the bargaining table with a different proposal. They must come with a clear understanding that the City Council will not agree to terms that widen the structural deficit the rest of the city employees have worked diligently to close.
