Lafayette looks at licensing electricians

Jan 5, 2012

Electricians in Lafayette could soon need a license to operate.

An ordinance with that requirement for all electrical workers is scheduled to appear before council members next week.

City Engineer Jenny Miller says the move would increase safety for Lafayette residents. She thinks it won’t be hard for established electricians to get licensed, if they have the necessary experience.

Miller says substandard work her office has come across is the reason for requiring a license .
