The City of Rocklin public offices will be closed from December 25, 2016, through January 2, 2017, as the City conducts its 20th annual holiday furlough. Emergency services will continue to be provided at full staffing levels.
“Traditionally, the number of routine calls handled by the City between Christmas and New Year’s Day is low,” City Manager Rick Horst said. “This closure saves the City money and allows employees the opportunity to spend time with their families.”
Businesses searching for available commercial property in Rocklin can now easily find potential locations online through a partnership with LoopLink. The online search directory lists properties for sale or for lease and can be filtered by property type or criteria. Listings feature photos to allow searchers to get a firsthand look at properties anytime, anywhere.

The purchase price is $5.8 million, with an initial payment of $2.8 million to be made at closing, followed by six annual payments of $531,015.96 beginning in December of 2018.
