Based on the response and reaction from the public, the City of Dubuque will NOT offer a $100 gift certificate incentive for City employees who receive/complete the COVID-19 vaccination process.

The proposed incentive would have offered City employees who completed the COVID-19 vaccination process a choice of one of three options:

  1. a $100 gift certificate from a local restaurant of the employee’s choice and selected from a list of restaurants prepared by the City;
  2. a $100 gift certificate from a local non-profit organization from a list prepared by the City; or
  3. the employee could have chosen that a $100 donation be made in the employee’s name to a local non-profit organization of the employee’s choice.
The policy has been revoked and the item has been removed from the Monday, Feb. 1, City Council agenda.
