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.

The Geneva Public Works Department has contracted with Giant Restoration to paint fire hydrants on the City's east side starting Tuesday, June 18.

The company is expected to paint 274 hydrants in the coming weeks in an area primarily bounded by State Street (Route 38), Kirk Road, Fabyan Parkway and Route 25. Hydrant painting also will take place in the Geneva Business Park located off Averill Road east of Kirk Road. A map is available to view on the City's website.

Hydrants that were already painted as part of the City's "Art on Fire" hydrant design program will not be altered.
