Business & Liquor Licensing

City Hall
The City Administrator's Office oversees the processing of business and liquor licenses in the City of Geneva. Only certain types of businesses are required to hold a business and/or liquor license. Geneva's business and license regulations can be found under Title 4 of the Geneva City Code.

Business and liquor license applications can be downloaded from our website and submitted in person with the required attachments to the City Administrator's Office. Office hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday. If you have questions regarding the business and liquor license requirements, please contact Jeanne Fornari at 630-938-4544 or by email.

A procedural guideline for liquor license applications can be found online.
