Mayor’s Welcome

Share this Page

Dear Friends,
Nine score and two years ago the City of Geneva was born. Throughout our 182 years, we have evolved, assimilated, endured and built a reputation as a community that remains in-touch with the history that helped define us. We also remain in-tune with the future that awaits us.

Geneva’s success – its very brand – is often imitated but seldom duplicated. Our brand includes our government partners who provide excellent schools, highly regarded parks and recreation programs and an innovative and responsive library district. Geneva’s success also features residents of all ages engaged in civic and philanthropic affairs, industry partners that are market leaders, a healthy and diverse downtown business district and our physical environment. All those characteristics combined make our city the picture-perfect canvas to live, learn, work, play and raise a family.

More than 200,000 visitors come to Geneva every year to experience our hospitality and warm welcome. Thanks to all Geneva has to offer, people return time and again for another dose of the Geneva brand, the same brand you helped make possible.

My best,

Kevin Burns
City of Geneva
