City Of Geneva Ordinances

Geneva, Ohio Code of Ordinances

Geneva, Ohio City Charter

Form Of Government

The City of Geneva was incorporated as a “Home Rule Charter” city in 1958. As a charter city, Geneva chose the City Council-Manager form of government to manage the government. Under this form of government, the City Council is responsible for defining the mission and policies of the City of Geneva. This is usually done through the enactment of ordinances and resolutions. The City Manager assists the City Council in defining the policies of the City. After the city-wide policies have been developed, the City Manager is responsible for the administration and management of these policies.

What this means for all employees in the City of Geneva is that they work for their respective department head and then for the City Manager. While City Council oversees all matters of the City, the responsibility for personnel rests with the City Manager. This form of operation insures that the day-to-day business of the City is run on a professional non-political basis.

Currently, the City provides the citizens of Geneva with such services as police and fire protection through the respective departments; street services through the street department; a wastewater treatment plant; finance department, zoning inspections and compliance, and various other administrative functions, all available at the Municipal Building. Each employee plays a vital role in providing these services that the citizens of Geneva have come to expect.

About Council

The City of Geneva operates under the Council/City Manager form of government. The Geneva City Council is made up of seven elected officials. All the Councilors are at-large. The President is elected at the special council meeting on the first Monday of December following an election of Councilors. The Vice-President and others are then appointed. All seven City Council members are paid a modest stipend. City Council elections are held in the November elections in the odd numbered years. The President of Geneva City Council is the presiding officer at all City Council meetings. He represents the City on local, state and national levels. In his absence, his duties are performed by the Vice-President.

The City of Geneva Council is the City’s legislative body. It sets policies, approves budgets, determines tax rates and passes ordinances and resolutions to govern the City. Council also appoints citizen volunteers to the City’s boards and supervises the performances of the City Manager, the City Solicitor and the Clerk of Council.

Council Packets

A council packet for public viewing is available on the day of the council meeting at City Hall. Duplicate packets can be purchased for a fee. The packet includes: Agenda, Minutes, Legislation, City Manager Report, Payment of Bills, Financial Reports, Department Reports & General Information.

Council Meeting & Presentation Schedule

Council meetings are held the second and fourth Mondays of each month in the Council Meeting Room at City Hall, 44 North Forest St., Geneva, OH 44041. Open to the public.
