The future of the city is set to change in just three years when it becomes the province’s largest city, and it has been a major beneficiary of the province-wide construction boom.
Dubuque, a town of about 1,100 people about 30 kilometres east of the Quebec City area, has a population of about 7,000.
The population boom has brought jobs and growth to the city, which has seen a doubling of residents in the last 10 years.
But there are also concerns about what some have called a massive underfunding of public services, which is why some residents are angry.
The city has struggled with a housing shortage, a lack of public transportation and a lack and increasing rate of vehicle theft.
It also has a major police force with a budget of about $15 million.
The construction boom has been instrumental in attracting new residents and helping to fill the gap in housing, said Mike Waddell, a spokesman for the city.
“Dubuques growth has come at the expense of its own services,” he said.
Mr Waddill said the city was planning to create a new city hall, but was waiting for a grant from the province.
He said the council would also look at increasing parking.
There are some signs that some residents believe the city may need to do more to address issues, such as parking, he said, but it has not been confirmed.
Dubuois city councillor Kevin McInerney said the construction boom was a “catalyst” for the creation of a new town hall.
“(The construction) is an opportunity for us to grow, to do things differently and to have a voice, he told ABC News.
However, he warned there was a risk that the city could have to become less inclusive and more restrictive.
Some residents are concerned the city’s new city council would limit their rights to vote and run in the upcoming election.”
I’m concerned about the implications of that, but I’m also very happy with the way the city has grown,” he added.
Local councillors are also concerned about a possible future of “free business advertising”, which has been dubbed a “free advertising zone” in the town.”
You’re in the free advertisement zone, and that’s what we’re hoping the council will be able to stop us from doing.” “
The way the free business advertisement zones work is that you can’t be in the city and there’s not a business to advertise in it.”
You’re in the free advertisement zone, and that’s what we’re hoping the council will be able to stop us from doing.
“The city’s mayor, Paul Joly, said the new city government would consider a variety of options to address the issue.”
We want to make sure that we are building the right kind of communities for our citizens to live and work in, and I want to do everything I can to ensure that we have those communities,” he told reporters.”
This is a community that has been on the forefront of the globalisation of our economy, but also has some issues.
“He urged the public to continue to give the town time to grow.”
The future of Dubuques, and of the whole city, is at stake,” he continued.
