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.

The original item was published from October 6, 2022 2:26 PM to October 6, 2022 2:37 PM

Halloween Trick or Treating

Recommended trick-or-treating hours will be from 3 to 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 31 in Geneva.

As a reminder, Halloween is not a City of Geneva holiday. The City does not provide guidance as to the cancellation of Halloween events due to weather. While Halloween weather can be very unpredictable, the decision to trick-or-treat is left to the discretion of individual families.

Safety Tips

The Geneva Police Department would like to highlight the following Halloween safety measures:

  • If you choose to hand out candy, please turn on your porch light.
  • If you choose to not participate, please turn your porch light off.
  • Trick-or-treat with a group if possible.
  • Make sure trick-or-treaters have a clear field of vision; wear light-colored costumes or incorporate reflective tape into their costume.
  • Use caution when crossing streets and check all directions for cars.
  • Do not enter any homes.
  • Check all treats once you arrive back home. Only eat unopened candy that is in its original packaging.
  • Respect others and their property.

We hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable Halloween. If you should have any questions please contact the Geneva Police Department at 630-232-4736.
