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 original item was published from July 15, 2019 4:14 PM to May 1, 2020 12:00 AM

Update - July 25
The project now has been shifted to Monday and Tuesday, July 29-30 due to a construction equipment failure with the City's contractor.

The revised schedule is weather-dependent.

Update - July 19
Due to the weather, the paving dates have been adjusted for this project. The entrance, as well as access to the Geneva Park District parking lot, will now be closed Friday, July 26 and Monday, July 29 as the contractor resurfaces the area near the City's Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The entrance drive will be open during that weekend. The pedestrian path is anticipated to remain open throughout the duration of the project.

The revised schedule is weather-dependent.

Original Post - July 15
The entrance to the City's Wastewater Treatment Plant off Route 25 will be closed for repaving during the week of July 22. One of the impacts is the Geneva Park District's parking area at the bottom of the hill near the Fox River Trail will be closed during construction.

The City has notified the Geneva Park District of the upcoming project, which is weather dependent.
