Hoping to protect its residents, the city of Dubuque will stop spraying pesticides in five more parks. That will be in addition to the 10 that are already pesticide-free.

One of Dubuque's most popular parks is expanding. For the first time since 1937, the city will annex land adjacent to Eagle Point Park, after a donation from a Dubuque family.

Dubuque hopes to restore Eagle Point Park to attract wildlife and more visitors. The city has approved a plan to address severe erosion, invasive plants, and a lack of natural habitat. And the city wants to know what people think.

Dubuque has begun offering curbside collection of electronic waste. Starting today, appointments can be made to dispose of electronics such as laptops, monitors, and TVs, among others.

Rising Rivers

Thanks to weekend storms, the Mississippi River and other rivers in this area are rising.

City officials in Dubuque are taking action against the emerald ash borer. The city's Park Division is urging residents to treat their ash trees now before they become infected.

City Forester, Steve Pregler, says the EAB has probably been in the area for at least four years, but Dubuque officials didn't notice any symptoms until this spring. Most of the beetles have been found in the south end of the city, after traveling along the Mississippi River. 

Dubuque now has a new way for residents to understand how the city pays its bills. The online "Open Budget" tool allows access to the city's financial records using charts, graphs, and images. Budget Director Jennifer Larson says the open budget website includes Dubuque's expenses for operations and capital improvement projects, plus operating revenue.
