Electricians may soon need a license to operate in Lafayette.
The city council unanimously approved a measure requiring those in the profession to become certified. Currently, anyone can do electrical work.
City Engineer Jenny Miller says the change protects the city, businesses, and residents.
The Ordinance Committee will review the proposal over the next 30-days prior to the second reading.
Miller says the group will aim at clarifying some of the language and make sure the policy is as thorough as possible.
