6-4-23 NEWS IN ROSEVILLE CA AREA
Happy JUNE! Can you believe 2023 is already almost 6 months old and Christmas is only 203 days away! 😊🎄 That means it’s time for the 6-4-23 news in Roseville CA area update!
GREAT WATER NEWS FOR OUR ROSEVILLE AREA!
Per KCRA, “Thanks to this year’s big winter rain and snow season, City of Roseville officials say they have been able to store more groundwater than ever before. Improving groundwater storage is an important part of the greater Sacramento region’s plans to increase the security of the drinking water supply. During times of drought, groundwater acts as a water savings account for when surface water from reservoirs is less available.”
GREAT water news, indeed, and mega Kudos to our sweet City of Roseville! And aren’t we grateful for all the rain we got this year! 😊
Are you working on your garden and looking for ideas for new plants? Here’s a great video from Green Acres with various plants that are dog-friendly and dog-safe, though with a couple of cautions to go with their recommendations. 😊
And speaking of gardens, there are some great planting tips for this first week in June from Sacramento Digs – including tomato hints, transplant tips, and garden chores checklist. Enjoy!
CLEAN UP AND WEED OUT IN ROSEVILLE CA
This Saturday is the last chance for the Neighborhood Clean Up Days being provided via the City of Roseville and RCONA – Roseville Coalition of Neighborhood Associations!
There are two sites available this Saturday between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. (Or when all dumpsters are full) at the following locations:
June 10, Saint John’s Church, 2351 Pleasant Grove Blvd
June 10, Saugstad Park, 100 Buljan Drive
A voucher may be in your April utility bill or may have been sent electronically to your email on file. Be prepared to present the voucher and a copy of your driver’s license for proof of Roseville residency on the day of the event. HOWEVER, if you did NOT receive a voucher, that happened to many. So just go ahead and attend BUT bring a driver’s license with your pix AND your Roseville address. If you are new to Roseville and haven’t gotten your license changed, bring your utility bill with your new address. 😊
Both of these are great locations and open to all. But for those who live in one of our FIVE lovely 55+ communities – Sun City Roseville, The Silverado Homes at Eskaton Village, Del Webb’s The Club at Westpark, Lennar’s Heritage Solaire, and our newest 55+, Lennar’s Heritage Placer Vineyards – the location at Saint John’s Church, 2351 Pleasant Grove Blvd., is the closest.
NOTE – they can close early if they fill up, so I would recommend getting there at 8:30am or shortly thereafter, even if there might be a line.
POSSIBLY SAD NEWS ABOUT OUR GOATS
Grazing goats, used to prevent wildfires, may be out of business with new labor law for herders – and that’s NOT the only great reason for them being used. They work hard to improve the environment, help forests thrive, and more! And that doesn’t even count the fact that they are just SO cute to watch!
“Due to changes in state laws, come next January, it will be more expensive to manage the four-legged firefighters, with the goat herders getting a big raise: $4,000 to over $14,000 a month, Arrowsmith explained.”
According to the article by KCRA, Channel 3, “The California Farm Bureau said if the new rule goes into effect, the state will have to find other ways to prevent wildfires and grassfires.”
If that makes you sad as well, you might want to contact your state representative and ask them to reconsider these changes to allow for the goats to continue here in Roseville as well as our surrounding area of Lincoln, Rocklin, and all the Sacramento areas that enjoy them. There is also a GoFundMe for the goats – just click here —>>> https://www.gofundme.com/f/save-ca-goats
