Frequently Asked Questions

Mailed Newsletters

Can I be added or removed from newsletter distribution?

Paper newsletters are mailed to every Genoa Township address; however, residents may opt-in/out of electronic communications.  If your house was recently constructed, the address may not be in our distribution list yet. If you would like to receive the paper newsletter, but are not yet receiving it, contact the Communication Director. All Genoa Township residents should expect to receive a newsletter mailing quarterly beginning in 2024 (January, April, August, July, October). 

Electronic News Distribution

I would like to receive E-newsletters. How do I sign up?

There are a variety of subscription options available. Self-register for emails you would like to receive. 

Promotional Assistance

Will you help promote our business/event/fundraiser?

It is the general policy of the Township's Communication Department to offer each new business opening or re-opening within Genoa Township a one-time-only promotion via social media. Occasionally, there are opportunities for businesses and organizations to sponsor a Township event or special project which would gain that entity recognition in a Township publication.  

Non-profit organizations such as schools, scouting groups, athletic groups, etc. that are hosting an event that may be of interest to the general public are often promoted on social media.
