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.

[ARCHIVED] Hand Hole Repair - North Third Street

The original item was published from October 31, 2018 3:42 PM to February 1, 2019 12:00 AM

Gia Mia Hand Hole Cover Repair Map
A City contractor will be repairing a hand hole during the first weekend of November on North Third Street.

Located near Gia Mia restaurant, 13 N. Third St., the hand hole's frame and cover are barely being held up by any concrete as the walls under the lid have crumbled. Crews will be working from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3 and then return Sunday, Nov. 4 to remove the framing, install the cover and replace the bricks.

That section of sidewalk will be closed to pedestrians during the weekend. The private alley to the south of the business will not be accessible. The public alley to the north of Gia Mia will remain open.

The contractor will be notifying area businesses about the project before starting construction. For more information, contact the Geneva Public Works Electric Division at 630-232-1503.
