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] May Is Motorcycle Awareness Month

The original item was published from May 5, 2021 2:50 PM to March 1, 2022 12:05 AM

As the weather turns for the better each spring, you often see more motorcycles populate the roadway. Each year, the Geneva Police Department responds to traffic crashes involving motorcycles, which can be preventable if these simple safety recommendations are followed:

  • Passenger car drivers must allow greater following distance behind a motorcycle.
  • Drivers must show extra caution in intersections.
  • Most crashes occur when a driver fails to see a motorcyclist and turns left in front of a motorcycle.
  • Drivers should never try to share a lane with a motorcycle. Always give a motorcycle the full lane width.
  • Motorcyclists should avoid riding in poor weather conditions when possible.
  • Motorcyclists should position their motorcycles to avoid a driver's blind spot.
  • Motorcyclists should utilize appropriate safety equipment.

Thank you for taking driving safety seriously. We look forward to a safe and enjoyable summer for our residents and those who visit our community.
