Powering Up

Power Restored
Geneva owns and operates its own electric utility, and we take great pride in providing reliable electric service to our residents and businesses. However, like all utilities, we are susceptible to outages caused by bad weather, animals, equipment issues and more. This blog is designed to provide updates on what caused outages after service has been restored. Large-scale incidents will be posted in real-time on the City's Alert Center on the our website homepage. Customers can subscribe to receive these updates via Notify Me.

People looking to report outages to the City should call the Public Works Electric Division at 630-2321503 during normal business hours and the Police Department at 630-232-4736 after-hours, weekends and holidays. The City's online request tracker system and social media accounts are not monitored 24 hours a day.

[ARCHIVED] Halloween Is Around The Corner

The original item was published from September 26, 2018 3:07 PM to July 1, 2019 12:00 AM

It is hard to believe that fall is already here. The summer season absolutely flew by quickly.

With the fall season comes cooler weather, football, and of course Halloween. The Geneva Police Department would like to take this opportunity to provide some safety reminders for those who plan on trick-or-treating this year. We recommend that Halloween trick-or-treating be conducted between 3 and 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 31.

The Police Department also recommends following these safety guidelines:

  • Wear light colored clothing or some type of reflective material for better visibility;
  • Ensure costumes fit and are worn in a manner that prevents tripping;
  • If children wear masks, make sure they can see clearly and their visibility is not obstructed;
  • Small children should always be accompanied by an adult;
  • It is best to trick-or-treat in groups;
  • Go out in daylight when possible and carry a flashlight for use if out after dark;
  • Only give and accept wrapped candy;
  • Examine all candy before allowing children to eat it;
  • Carrying hard props such as swords and daggers should be avoided. Substitute hard props with foam rubber props;
  • Stay within familiar neighborhoods. Only visit homes where you know the residents; and
  • Watch for traffic

The Geneva Police Department hopes everyone has a fun and safe Halloween.
