GENEVA TOWNSHIP 2016 YEAR IN REVIEW

2016 proved to be another challenging and successful year in Geneva Township.      As a direct result of our dedicated road department, the Township's roads continue to be maintained and improved. The voters in November 2016 approved a 1.49 mil replacement fire levy.  Township residents continue to enjoy the excellent safety services provided by the Geneva Fire Department and the Northwest Ambulance District.

*Completed construction of a 40 foot x 64 foot storage building.
