Roseville City Manager Rob Jensen announces retirement
Served the City of Roseville for 28 years
Roseville, CA- Roseville City Manager Rob Jensen announced today that he will retire June 29, after serving the City of Roseville for 28 years, including three years as city manager and three years as assistant city manager.
"I could not have picked a better City to live and work," Jensen said. "From my very first day of employment, it was apparent that the City of Roseville is special. I would not trade my career here for anything."
In his letter to City Council, Jensen noted that the Council's consistent vision and commitment to fiscal responsibility over the years are the main reasons Roseville's become a significant economic engine in the region.
"Roseville is a place where people want to live and where companies want to do business. It's been a privilege to be part of that growth and transformation," said Jensen. "I am so grateful for the time I've spent working for the City, and the Council's confidence in allowing me to serve as its City Manager"
Mayor Susan Rohan praised Jensen's service to Roseville. "Roseville has benefitted enormously from Rob's stable, competent leadership and organizational management expertise," Rohan said. "His focus on fiscal responsibility and civic engagement during the EngageRoseville effort has been exemplary and will lead to a stronger, more sustainable financial future for our City. I know I speak for the entire City Council in thanking Rob for his outstanding service to the City of Roseville, and to the Capital Region."
During his tenure as City Manager, the City has been able to construct several new facilities downtown with no impact to the General Fund, including a new office building for city departments and Sierra College, a new fire station and a 423-space parking garage. Jensen has played a key role in developing higher-education opportunities in South Placer County and worked on issues with regional significance including water and electricity, transportation, and economic development.
Jensen became a Roseville resident when he began his career with Roseville as an assistant engineer in 1990. He was appointed assistant city manager in January 2011, overseeing development services, public works, Roseville Electric, environmental utilities, and parks, recreation and libraries. He previously served as Roseville's public works director and city engineer for eight years. Jensen was named Public Works Director of the Year in 2007 by American City & County Magazine, due in part to Roseville's successful focus on strengthening its flood protection. These flood efforts resulted in Roseville being the only city in the nation to achieve a Class I flood-protection rating from FEMA, which means lower flood insurance rates for residents and businesses.
The City Council will conduct a nationwide search for Roseville's next city manager, who is expected to be hired by the end of summer.
