The Charter of the City of Roseville operates as the "constitution" for the City. It sets out the limits of authority for all of the officers of the City, including the City Council, and establishes many of the City's procedures of government. Once each decade, the City appoints a temporary commission to review, on a section by section basis, the entire charter and assesses the strengths and weaknesses of the various provisions. The next such review is to begin in 2019.
