The City of Genoa has once again been named a Tree City USA. Read the new release here.
With temperatures warming up after record-breaking cold over the past few days, snowmelt and rain can lead to flooding in our region.
Frozen ground is unable to absorb water and snow and run-off immediately flows to the storm sewers. Ice can block storm drains and may create street flooding.
If you see street flooding please contact City Hall or the non-emergency police number after hours.
Homeowners should check their sump-pumps to make sure they are in good, working condition.
A boil order is in effect until 12:00 PM on January 31st.

Due to the extreme temperatures, City Hall offices will be closed on 1/30/2019. The Police Department is a warming center and will be open 24/7. To call the non-emergency police department for issues such as main breaks, please call (815) 784- 6633. For emergencies, please dial 911.
With the frigid temperatures and forecasted snow over the next week, please stay safe and warm!
The Genoa Police Department is a warming station for anyone in need.
We have received a number of calls from residents stating that they are receiving calls from City Hall phone numbers, (815) 784- 2327 and (815) 784- 7123, and being asked about their energy bills. This is NOT City staff calling you. Staff would not call you to discuss your energy bill. Please use discretion when communicating with these individuals both over the phone and in person.
Winter Storm Warning:
5-9+ inches of snow forecasted from late afternoon January 18th to midday January 19th.
