Government Transparency

Overview

Government Transparency

The City of Rocklin strives to operate in a manner that is both transparent and accountable to the public. Being transparent is much more than just opening the financial books to residents who have an interest, it is a state of operating where information is in the open and easy to find. This page serves as both an overview of how government works in Rocklin, and as a one-stop-shop with access to topics we know our citizens are looking for. The City of Rocklin hopes you find this transparency page both informative and helpful.

General information

Boards and Commissions

The City of Rocklin encourages citizen participation through involvement on committees and commissions and conducts extensive outreach efforts to be sure that every resident who wants to be heard has a voice. Boards and Commissions play an important role in City Government by assisting and advising the City Council in formulating and implementing policy, and in some cases functioning as the decision-making body.

General information

Meetings, Agendas, Minutes, and Public Hearing Notices

The City of Rocklin conducts its business in compliance with Government Code Section 54950 (the “Brown Act”). The intent of the Act is to ensure that deliberation and actions of local public agencies are conducted in open and at public meetings. A meeting takes place whenever a quorum (generally three or more members) is present and information about the business of the body is received.  Social functions (e.g., receptions, dinners) do not fall under the Act unless City business is conducted.

SB 272

This bill requires local agencies, except a local educational agency, to create a catalog of enterprise systems, to make the catalog publicly available upon request in the office of the person or officer designated by the agency’s legislative body, and to post the catalog on the local agency’s Internet Web site. The bill requires the catalog to disclose a list of the enterprise systems utilized by the agency, the current system vendor and product, unless, on the facts of the particular case, the public interest served by not disclosing that information clearly outweighs the public interest served by disclosure, in which case the local agency may instead provide a system name, brief title, or identifier of the system.
