Today in Sacramento: Here’s what you need to know for Wednesday

Good morning. Here’s what you need to know today, Wednesday, Nov. 2:

Roseville City Council to weigh beautifying city entrances

Some time ago, Roseville city staff members were asked to develop options for enhancing the traffic entrances to the city. Two unimproved medians on South Cirby Way between Old Auburn Road and Champion Oaks Drive in southeast Roseville were identified as the ones with the greatest need for enhancements. The medians are wide and have no landscaping or irrigation. Several heritage oaks are growing in the medians. Three options have been developed for consideration. Staff members have recommended a midpriced option that includes a monument sign welcoming motorists to Roseville. The estimated cost is about $89,0000 with $2,500 in annual maintenance. The council meets at 7 p.m. in its chambers at 311 Vernon Street, Roseville.
