Director of community development to temporarily take the helm while city search for permanent replacement to Malinen.

"In the best interests of each other it made sense to part ways." At Thursday's special meeting, Council members said any number of adminisrative department heads could serve as interim city manager. Other potential appointees included public works director Duane …

Council-manager relations had been an apparent issue for several months.

Asked about Malinen's severance package, Roseville Mayor Dan Roe told Roseville Patch the departed city manager is receiving seven months pay, six months per his original employment contract plus one extra month for consultative services.

Ongoing debate about Roseville’s 2012-2013 budget is scheduled to resume at the City Council’s Aug. 22 meeting. But any talk of tax hikes or revenue increases won’t end until the final budget vote in December. The next reality check for the five-member Council is Sept. 12, when it must establish a tax levy that cannot be exceeded, Roseville City Manager Bill Malinen said Thursday. “It can’t go up after that date; it can only go down,” said Malinen. Roseville’s 2011 budget is $39 million, with $14.7 million of that sum coming from the city tax levy.
