Mayor's Fall 2021 State of the City
Mayor Roy D. Buol
Aug. 27, 2021 -- For Immediate Release
DUBUQUE, Iowa – Dubuque Mayor Roy D. Buol’s Fall 2021 “State of the City” focuses on overcoming the pandemic and looking toward the future.
Citing the unified message from nearly 200 local health care providers representing 12 Dubuque County medical organizations, Buol encourages residents who can get vaccinated to do so.
“It is my sincere hope that unvaccinated residents, those who have no medical reason to not be vaccinated, will hear this message from the same local doctors that otherwise care for them, their families, and friends,” said Buol. “As they said, we are in a situation where we can prevent severe disease, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19 by vaccination.”
In overcoming the pandemic, Buol adds that the city has a bright future to look forward to, expanding on the Imagine Dubuque comprehensive plan and projects such as the Miracle League of Dubuque Complex.
The text version of the Fall 2021 State of the City appears in the September/October issue of the City News newsletter currently being mailed to utility customers. A video version is airing on CityChannel Dubuque and was also distributed through the City’s social media channels.
Buol’s quarterly State of the City columns appear in City News, Dubuque’s utility bill newsletter. They are also converted into videos that air on CityChannel Dubuque (on Mediacom channels 8 and 117.2 and online at www.cityofdubuque.org/media
) and are shared on the City of Dubuque’s Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn channels. Both the text version and video are also available at www.cityofdubuque.org/sotc
