Commonwealth Edison has informed the City about tree trimming scheduled to take place this summer primarily near Western Avenue in Geneva.
During June and July, ComEd crews will be trimming trees in an area bounded by Fargo Boulevard, Western Avenue, Allen Drive and Dunstan Road as well as along Western Avenue south of Cheever Avenue.
While the City of Geneva owns and operates its own electric utility, ComEd runs 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. Maps 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.
