Commonwealth Edison has informed the City about tree trimming operations scheduled to take place this summer in various sections throughout Geneva.
During July, ComEd crews will be trimming trees near Route 25, Oakwood Drive, River Lane, Stevens Street, Seventh Street, South Street and Western Avenue. In August, ComEd's operations will move to Kaneville Road and Fabyan Parkway west of Viking Drive.
While the City of Geneva owns and operates its own electric utility, ComEd does run power lines through the community to our substations as well as neighboring municipalities. The company states its vegetation management program helps ensure electrical reliability since tree branch contact with power lines is a leading cause of outages.
ComEd will be notifying affected residents about tree trimming taking place in their neighborhood. A map and more information also can be found on the City's website.
Residents who have questions or concerns with ComEd's program can call the company at 800-334-7661.
