|In the near future, the Roseville Police Department plans to ask City Council to approve an update to the existing ordinance that regulates burglary, robbery and panic alarm systems. Since 1999, the City has required that both residential and commercial alarm holders obtain permits from the police department. The ordinance also allows the police department to fine alarm holders for police responses for false alarms. The purpose is to help residents and businesses have effective, well managed alarm systems, and to reduce the number of times police officers respond to false alarms. Read on for more information about the proposed update.|

|An update about water use in our parks and providing recycled water for construction uses were highlights from the May 20th City Council meeting. |
Recycled water is non-potable water treated by our waste water treatment plant to state health standards that can be used for irrigation and other purposes without impacting our drinking water supply.
The City of Roseville announced additional water-use restrictions for Roseville water customers in light of Governor Brown’s Executive Order and the May 6 State Water Resources Control Board’s drought emergency action requiring increased statewide water-use reductions.
To meet the 25 percent statewide water reduction goal, City of Roseville customers are required to reduce water consumption by 28 percent over 2013, an 8 percent decrease from last year. This will require the implementation of more stringent drought provisions.
For residential customers, the most noticeable change includes watering day restrictions for outdoor irrigation. Watering days for residential turf will be limited to two days per week, Monday and Friday only, before 10 a.m. and after 8 p.m. Commercial customers will have watering days limited to Monday and Thursday.
