The Finance Department is the customer service core for the City of Geneva. Our staff, and that of our financial partner, Lyons National Bank, recognize that your investment dollars, be they in the form of property taxes, sales, taxes, utility payments or other payments to the City are as precious to you as they are to us. To that end, we manage your investment with the goal of providing a high level of value in terms of efficiency, great services, programs, and facilities.

Our groundbreaking partnership with Lyons National Bank is a prime example of leveraging your investment.
