As of January 1st, 2018 the electric rates reflect the increased cost of purchased power and service fees. The Village of Genoa has not raised the base rate for electric in several years.
The Infrastructure Cost for water reflects an increase of the water purchased from the City of Oregon. This is to cover their infrastructure project costs for improvements to the water plant, which controls algae bloom conditions and improved disinfection procedures.
With winter weather upon us we would like to remind all citizens and business owners in the event of snow, you are required to clear your sidewalks per Village Ordinance.
For downtown walkways, store owners need to clear the area from the front of their buildings to the street with snow up to 2 inches deep.
For snow that is greater than 2 inches deep, Public Works will assist in clearing the walkways.
As per Ordinance 6-13 any snow greater than 2 inches and a snow emergency is declared, “all” vehiclesmust be removed from the streets immediately so the Public Works crew can clear the snow safely and event free.
The 1st Annual Holiday Parade held on November 26th started at 6:30 traveling through town and down Main St. The Parade ended with Santa and Mrs. Claus making their way to Town Hall for the Annual Christmas tree lighting and children’s visits to Santa. The Town Hall was decorated for the occasion portraying an Ole Fashion Christmas. Many Village residents turned out for the festivities with Santa and Mrs. Claus welcomed over ninety children. A Christmas decoration contest was held for Village businesses and residents alike. The Mayor escorted three Judges from out of town to pick the winners.
