City Manager Rob Jensen: City proactive in controlling labor costs
What does it take to deliver an excellent quality of life in a community? Good policies and great people.

Both have proven instrumental to Roseville’s ranking as one of the best places in the nation across a range of categories, including for safety, health, young families, entrepreneurs, and even being playful.

While our staff is passionate about delivering high-quality services that make Roseville the great community it is, the cost to provide services continues to escalate. As with any service provider, our highest cost is labor. Given this reality, I’m particularly thankful that the City’s labor groups and employees have been an integral part of the solution to managing labor costs. The changes we’ve made together still allow the City of Roseville to attract and retain competent, dedicated people to serve our community.
