So much of what we have achieved over this last year is a direct result of our partnership efforts. As this new year approaches us, we hope to continue to grow our partnership as we seek to continuously improve & transform the business technology services within the City of Roseville.
To our staff, I would like to personally thank you for your dedication, skill, leadership and commitment in making Roseville IT Department – the dynamic and innovative organization it is today. You really are the best. As we reflect upon this last year, I can't help but think of all the amazing things we have accomplished.
