Original Post - July 9
Work continues on the Dodson Street water tower painting project with sandblasting scheduled to begin the week of July 13, weather permitting.

The tower, located behind Geneva’s Fire Department headquarters, 200 East Side Drive, was last painted in 1996. The City has contracted with Jetco to complete the project.

Crews typically are working from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday, although hours may be extended to 8 p.m. some nights if the project falls behind schedule due to inclement weather. Work also is expected to take place on some Saturdays.

The project began in mid-April, and now is expected to be completed in October.
