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.

The current City Charter can be found here.

Every 10 years, the Roseville City Council appoints members of the community to review the City’s Charter and make recommendations for amendments to the City Council for consideration. Any amendments the City Council approves will be on the November 3, 2020 ballot for Roseville voters to consider.

Background

The municipal government of the City of Roseville is governed through a charter authorized by the California Constitution. The Charter is a vital document which establishes a degree of autonomy to local governments. The Charter addresses important aspects of Roseville's authority.

The original Charter of the City of Roseville was adopted by the voters on April 1, 1935 and certified by the California Secretary of State on May 2, 1935. Modifications to the original document have been approved by the voters on several occasions, with the last major amendment occurring during the 2010 General Election.

Although not required by state law, the City of Roseville has historically reviewed and amended the Charter every 10 years.
