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

Roseville council to vote on raises for two groups

The Roseville City Council will vote on agreements hammered out with Stationary Engineers, Local 39, and the Roseville Police Association calling for 2 percent raises to be granted in 2016 and again in 2018, a $24-per-month-per-employee increase in the city’s health and welfare contributions, and salary scale adjustments for some jobs in line with comparable jurisdictions. The agreements, previously ratified by the affected employees, are intended to align with salary increases granted to other city bargaining groups. The council’s open session starts at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 311 Vernon St.

Solar contract on West Sacramento agenda

The West Sacramento City Council will be asked to approve a $3.3 million contract with Solar United Network Inc. to design and install photovoltaic systems at four city sites: City Hall, the Bridge District Water Storage Tank, Fire Station 45 and the Central Water Storage Tank. The project is expected to save money over a 25-year period. Meetings start at 7 p.m. in the West Sacramento Civic Center, 1110 W. Capitol Ave.
