Dubuque Mayor Roy D. Buol is now offering residents and stakeholders a quarterly State of the City update, available in multiple formats and channels, rather than an annual public presentation. The Winter 2019 State of the City was recently distributed and focuses on a timely topic -- the process to develop the City’s annual operating and capital improvement program budgets.
Each year since 2007, Buol has delivered an annual State of the City Address to provide residents and stakeholders with an update on the state of the community. These public presentations were also broadcast on television and streamed and archived online.
“Much has been achieved and much has changed since that tradition began,” explained Buol. “Among those changes is the dramatic increase in the ways we have to receive information on topics important to us. As a result, I have chosen to modify the State of the City format to connect with more people and provide more frequent updates on community projects, initiatives, and issues.”
Buol’s new quarterly State of the City columns will appear in the City News newsletter four times per year. They will also be converted into a video that will air on CityChannel Dubuque (on Mediacom channels 8 and 117.2 and online at www.cityofdubuque.org/media) and will be shared on the City of Dubuque’s Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn channels. Both the text version and video will be available at www.cityofdubuque.org/sotc.
