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.

[ARCHIVED] Police & Public Works Department: Great Support During Fox Valley Marathon

The original item was published from November 10, 2017 to October 1, 2018 12:10 AM

I was one of many Geneva residents who helped with traffic detours last weekend during the Fox Valley Marathon, and I ran into Kelly Nowak yesterday, who as you all know helps notify residents, businesses, churches and other organizations along the route to try to minimize headaches on Sunday morning as well as recruits volunteers like me.

Anyway, Kelly wanted to make sure I knew how impressed she was with Commander Maduzia and Sgt. Rivera and the work they did to make sure the marathon ran smoothly through Geneva. She also had high praise for the Public Works team and their efforts in getting the street barricades in place. She said that judging from the low number of displeased drivers, this was the best marathon yet!

This was only my second year helping out, but it's such a great event, and I love that the runners race right through our beautiful downtown. Next year my goal is to try to get more residents to turn out to cheer the runners on.

Of course that scenic course is only made possible by our city employees doing the work to make it safe for everyone. So thanks for all the great work!
