UPDATES: What's Closed in Geneva Due to the Cold? City Hall, Library, Park District Classes ...

Geneva's Police Department and Fire Department will be activated as warming centers during the extreme cold.

In addition to District 304 schools, what's closed and what's open Monday, due to the record wind chills?

(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.

(2) The Geneva Public Library will be closed, as well. This from the library's website:

The Geneva Public Library will be closed all day, Monday, Jan. 6, 2014 due to the extreme weather conditions. We hope to be open on Tuesday, Jan. 7.

(3) Classes at the Geneva Park District are cancelled, too. The Park District website says:

For Monday, Jan. 6, all Geneva Park District classes/programs are cancelled, due to the weather.

The fitness centers and facilities will remain open during normal business hours of 5:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.

(5) All Kane County forest preserves and facilities will be closed to the public on Monday, Jan. 6, due to severe weather conditions.

The closures are to protect the safety and health of employees and the public, during well-below freezing temperatures and windchill factors.

All preserves are expected to reopen to the public on Tuesday, Jan. 7.

Why would the library and city hall close? I understand the schools closing, but are those employees walking to work or waiting for the bus? Something tells me no. Guess what Mr. Teske/Ms. Barclay? Batavia & St. Charles are open today. Maybe the adviser was a good idea after all. Hopefully he will have some common sense.
