How we govern ourselves is at the heart of our democracy.

For the City of Roseville, the document that governs how we conduct business is our charter. Every 10 years, the Charter Review Commission determines whether amendments should be recommended to the City Council as time, perspectives, and circumstances evolve and change. Once City Council decides which amendments to place on the ballot, the voters make the final decision.

The charter describes term limits, how the mayor is determined, how council vacancies are filled, the spending authority of the city manager, and how the City enacts, amends, and repeals ordinances. In addition, the charter covers the budget, council rules, bond sales, contract bids, municipal elections, and utility franchises.
