(1) Well, City Hall, for starters. This from the city's website:
With extremely cold temperatures and unsafe driving conditions in Kane County, Geneva City Hall and other City offices will be closed for business Monday, Jan. 6.
The Police and Fire departments will remain open. Public Works crews in the Streets, Electric and Water divisions also will be working their normal shifts.
The decision to close City Hall and other non-emergency offices stems from the Wind Chill Warning issued for Kane County.
The Police Department, 20 Police Plaza, and the Fire Department Headquarters, 200 East Side Drive, will be activated as warming centers Jan. 6. Both facilities will be open throughout the day, but neither building will provide any public sleeping accommodations.
There is no City Council meeting scheduled for Jan. 6. That decision was made in December. The council will next meet Monday, Jan. 13 as the Committee of the Whole.
The City will continue to post regular weather updates on our website, Facebook and Twitter accounts Jan. 6 and throughout the week.
