The biggest highlight in the City of Roseville in 2012 was the fact that the city council refused to listen to its constituents when discussing ways to hold the line on property taxes. And, now we are now stuck with the bill whether we like it or not!

how about the highlight of extremely huge jumps in the items on our quarterly utility bills and the council's refusal to look at creative ways to reduce the burden that these increases cause residents? it appears that if the city would let the st. paul water dept. take over the water part of our utility services, that, we would see savings on our water expense, as other surrounding suburbs do. if the police dept. was administered by the county sheriff as many other suburbs do, we could see savings in police protection. if the fire dept. was administered by maplewood or lake johanna, or if our dept. administration would take over the administration of smaller departments surrounding roseville, we could see savings in fire administration. there are many, many ways that the cost of roseville city government could be reduced, without any change in the quality of service, but the council will not think outside of the box.

Roger, it's all about control! Roseville is a large enough city where we don't necessarily have to "farm out" are administrative duties to another city. The attitude amongst a handful of constituents, councilman and city officials is that we have the financial means going forward to continue the path of raising property taxes any time a pet project comes along. Granted, infrastructure is not a pet project, but overpriced park plans are.

I don't know that I'd outsource the police department with Walmart coming soon. I'd prefer to see a Roseville PD substation at that mecca of raw capitalism. What sort of property tax refunds and/or rebates do you suppose Wally World negotiated with the City?
