Power Restored

Powering Up

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 power outage updates 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.

ILCMA Award 2022 Mera Johnson Stephanie DawkinsGeneva City Administrator Stephanie Dawkins and Human Resources Generalist Mera Johnson were recipients of the Illinois City/County Management Association's (ILCMA) Gregory J. Bielawski award for service to the profession. The award honors individuals who have gone above and beyond in the local government management profession.

Dawkins (left) was recognized for her service to the profession through mentoring and teaching young people, supporting colleagues, and actively participating in professional and community organizations.

Johnson, along with nine of her colleagues, formed the Legacy Project in 2011. This organization’s purpose is to advance women in local government by helping them succeed by enhancing career-building models that develop leadership skills and by providing an opportunity to network with female government professionals. In 2012, the Legacy Project was formally granted affiliate member status with ILCMA, and the group continues to make an impact on the profession today.

The Association handed out the awards during its annual banquet June 9. 

This was the second honor this year for Dawkins. On May 13, Northern Illinois University recognized her with an honorary membership in Pi Alpha Alpha for her outstanding public service. Pi Alpha Alpha identifies those whose careers have best advanced the ideals of "integrity, professionalism, and creative performance" in public service as individuals who are considered for honorary membership.

Congratulations to both Dawkins and Johnson on their success.
