Don’t move to Geneva!
Not only are our property taxes utterly absurd, but you’d think that they could keep the power on through a simple two-minute thunderstorm, but they can’t. And this has been going on for the better part of a decade.
And thanks to Mayor Kevin Burns, who’s capacity to make bad decisions is unsurpassed, he signed on to Prairie State Energy so we’re paying exorbitant electrical rates to have our power go out on a regular basis.
It wouldn’t be nearly as bad if the power just went out. But no! It has go off and on three separate times, so it can destroy or shorten the life of as many of your electrical devices as possible.
Last year, just around the 4th, we had a power outage during a mild storm, and then five more failure in the next two cool weeks with no precipitating storm.
All I can say is, if you happen to be driving through Geneva, and there’s one scant cloud in the sky, please don’t look cross-eyed at the power lines. I’d like to watch the end of the Cubs game.
